Conceria La Bretagna, Cowboy, Vachetta Leather, Double Shoulder

The 'Cowboy' tannage completed development in 2020 and was inspired by a trip to the heart of Texas. The Cowboy leathers are similar to typical 'Crazy Horse' leathers with earth tones and a waxy touch. La Bretagna has further innovated this type of leather to add an array of lighter colors with equal character and pop. What separates Cowboy is its aggressive pull-up and a well greased grain giving a matte effect that adds to the color burst when folded. The leather is hot stuffed, veg tanned, and 100% aniline.

The Tannery: La Bretagna - Tuscany, Italy (est. 1961)

  • La Bretagna was established in 1961 and is still run by the same Testi family in Tuscany, Italy.
  • Not only are the articles produced at La Bretagna some of the best in the world, what also sets La Bretagna apart is its willingness to research, develop, and invest in new technologies and methods. This is a big reason why we were initially drawn to this tannery.
  • With the intention to source the best quality raw materials, La Bretagna sources nearly all of its hides from a region in France called "La Bretagne", thus the name and logo. 
  • Being a 100% vegetable tannery, the tanneries ethos revolves around sustainability with a focus on the earth and the environment. You can read about any of the tannery leathers and you will learn how the earth holds inspiration behind each.
  • Vachetta leather is a special type of vegetable tanned leather that uses animal fats (tallow) and oils, as well as other natural vegetable oils. Vachetta leathers tend to be softer than other veg tan leathers such as bridle and harness.
  • 100% Aniline finish: The use of transparent aniline dyes allows the unique full grain texture of the hide to be visible.
  • Great yields. You will find that nearly the entire full grain double shoulder is usable.
  • These leathers are commonly used for higher end leather goods such as wallets, belts, shoes, furniture, handbags, purses, briefcases, key fobs, and other small accessories.
