Richard Hoffmans Leather Side - Sprinter - Marina Blue
The Tannery: Richard Hoffmans of Nettetal, Germany (est. 1899)
- Sprinter: Sprinter is a full grain, shrunken and tumbled leather giving it an irregular grain character. Rather than being plated with a grain like the 'Sprinter Nevada', the regular Sprinter leather is naturally shrunken and tumbled giving the leather a natural and irregular grain - meaning the grain is less consistent in texture. It has a semi-aniline finish and is water repellant. It is a chrome leather.
- Temper: Soft (Extremely flexible and pliable. No firmness) - Softer than 'Sprinter Nevada'
- Grain: Shrunken and tumbled
- Used for bags, small leather goods and accessories, shoes, upholstery, and more.
- The leather is struck through meaning it has the same color throughout, including the back side.
