The Tannery: Richard Hoffmans of Nettetal, Germany (est. 1899)
- Sprinter Nevada: Sprinter Nevada is a full grain, embossed (AKA plated) and tumbled leather. The embossing procedure is where the leather is stamped with a grain texture, giving the grain a very consistent look. Rather than being shrunken and tumbled to achieve a natural grain texture like the standard 'Sprinter' leather, the 'Sprinter Nevada' leather is plated, so not as natural of a grain texture, but giving the grain a more consistent texture throughout the entire skin. It has a 100% aniline finish and is water repellant. It is a chrome leather.
- Temper: Soft (Extremely flexible and pliable. No firmness) - not as soft as standard 'Sprinter"
- Grain: Embossed and tumbled
- Used for bags, small leather goods and accessories, shoes, and more.
- The leather is struct through meaning it has the same color throughout, including the back side.
