Stetson is the first distressed contract and hospitality grade leather with Crepaccio effect. Never before was it possible to marry the look of a waxed crackle leather with the specifications of a protected leather until now. Stetson has a rustic and timeless charm, which is enhanced by its great hand and look. Premium American cattle hides are used for this unique article. The hides show a nice coloration throughout. The crackle effect is achieved using the Crepaccio method, a supple milling process allows a mixture of crackles to develop throughout the hides, which are then permanently fixed onto the hide. This gives the leather not only an aged appearance and cozy appearance, but also a look that has not been seen yet. By pairing the traits of finished leather with the busy crackle look every part of the hide is usable making the yield better than most other leathers. 

For cleaning use damp cloth and gently dust leather off.
