Horween Leather has been a mainstay in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago for 100 years. Bucktown has also been the home of Ashland Leather for 7 years. Over the century, the neighborhood has changed but the tannery remains constant. Plans to transform the neighborhood to Lincoln Yards have just been announced by Sterling Bay.
Aniline leather is a term used to describe the amount and coverage of finish on leather grain. An aniline finish leaves the leather as close to its natural state as possible, which encourages unique and beautiful patina while highlighting the natural grain of the leather.
