|Auburn Leathercrafters is a family owned and operated business. Since
1950, they have been manufacturing dog collars, dog leashes, pet harnesses
and toys in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of Central New York State,
Latigo Leather: The word Latigo refers to a type of
leather that is tanned in a way that makes it especially soft and supple
with use. It is the same leather used for accessories in the
saddle-making trade, such as reins and cinches.
Bridle Leather: Our tan and black leather products
are made of Bridle Leather. Bridle Leather is used to make many of our
harnesses and collars because of its rich color and ability to withstand
harsh conditions and still look great. It is strong, firm, and resists
stretching. Bridle Leathers were developed to withstand the stresses and
strains that a horse puts its bridle through.
Natural Vegetable Tanned Skirting Leather: Vegetable
Tanning is a process where vegetable materials such as tree bark and
other materials are used in the tanning process. The result is a piece
of leather that is versatile enough to be used for a variety of
applications. Natural Vegetable Tanned Skirting Leather, the leather
used to make the best, hand-tooled saddles, pouches, and accessories, is
the same leather used for our harnesses and as a base for our red,
black, pink, blue, and yellow collars and leashes.
Top Grain or Full Grain Leather: The Grain refers to
the surface of the leather. Top Grain or Full Grain Leather is the
portion of the hide that is the strongest. Because of this nature of the
cut, you may see slight variations in the surface that add to the beauty
and character of the piece.
