All Manready leather goods are available in the following five Wicket and Craig leather colors: natural, light brown, medium brown, dark brown and black. Keep reading to learn more!
Natural: Being the lightest color option, these are made from vegetable tanned leather, or "veg tanned" leather. Vegetable tanned leather is naturally dyed with materials like tree bark and plants, producing a beige color. Free of coloring or chromates, this leather will age, or "patina" over time. Factors that will affect the appearance of veg-tanned leather are sunlight, oils from your skin, oiling it, liquids touching it, and time... Needless to say, veg-tanned leather only gets better with time! Many folks even like to document the aging process with pictures to see the change that occurs.
Light Brown: Our most popular color option, these are made from harness leather, and are a warm, tan color. Please note that harness leather has a slight wax-type feel to the touch and shows light abrasions easily. This is actually Travis's favorite as it looks incredible with age. (The more roughed up the better!)
Medium Brown: This color has an orange-brown hue, commonly known as "chestnut brown". We use bridal leather for this style.
Dark Brown: Our dark brown coasters are a classic, chocolate color, and are made with bridal leather. You can't go wrong with this color.
Black: Being our darkest color option, these are made with bridal leather.
