Lodge is an old world aged leather with a buttery hand. Aniline dyed for color, Lodge then receives a unique oil and wax treatment to create the dramatic crackle effect.
When this leather is stretched or pulled, the color migrates and becomes lighter in the pulled areas. The Cracked effect will soften with use overtime.
Offering a traditional appeal featuring a rich mix of color, the Lodge collection is a versatile leather perfect for today’s shifting styles.
Produced on select European cowhides, natural characteristics such as healed scars blend with the natural look of Lodge. Every hide will have an individual personality with the evident touches of mother nature.
This leather will only improve with age and provide a rich distressed look for years to come.
