In the tanning process, a significant amount of oily leather is used, and the transfer of these oils results in a rich and matte texture. Due to the abundance of oil, even without maintenance, aging features are easily developed with regular use.
Pueblo Leather(Horse leather)
When pressure is applied to the leather, the internal oils and waxes move, creating a varied coloration, but it does not return to its original state once the pressure is removed. This is because wax requires a certain amount of heat to melt, so changes are induced by applying heat (such as rubbing with fingers). In other words, the leather surface continues to evolve with use, sometimes persistently changing and at other times returning to its original state.
Additionally, Pueblo leather contains oil and wax, giving it the characteristic of healing scars. In other words, with use, scars may appear multiple times, and these scars will disappear, providing a very rich texture.
