Rodeo is tanned chrome-free and vegetable as well as fixed and flatscarred. The surface is dull and gives the leather a strikingly robust appearance (used look). We achieve this appearance by sanding the leather surface. Subsequently, the leather is treated with fats and oils. By storing different amounts of fatliquor in the various areas of the leather fabric a slight dichroism is created. The optical effect is typical, giving the leather an individual touch. With its thickness of 1.4-1.6 mm Rodeo leather is particularly suitable for shoes, bags and leather goods and furniture. The leathers are ECARF certified.
