Appaloosa Double Shoulders are 100% Veg-Tanned leather that has been aniline-dyed and finished to a beautiful semi-gloss. It has a medium stretch with a subtle pull-up effect and moderate pebble texture.
These Double Shoulders average 12-14 sq. ft. with a consistent thickness ranging from 5-6 oz (2.0-2.4mm). This leather is untrimmed, not uniform in shape and available in colors blue, brown, black, and tan.
Our friends at R. Riveter gave the Appaloosa Double Shoulders a try
“We opted for the Appaloosa Double Shoulder for this industrious dopp kit, primarily for the distinguished texture. Take it from me - don’t let the semi-gloss finish intimidate – this article reads a lustrous matte finish as the texture of the hide breaks it up just enough to be bold, not flashy.
The hand is sturdy and adds to the robustness of the finished product. This product and any items constructed with it are substantial, hard-working pieces that will survive anything you throw at it.”
