Ladies’ Horse-Hide Leather Roadster Jacket
Hard to Come by: Horsehide Leather Apparel.
These ‚roadster‘ jackets are made of French and Italian hide, which is then processed in Italy to produce a thick 0.9 mm), yet soft and comfortable leather, chrome-tanned to give it a gentle matt shimmer. A deep-dye process is used, (not simply sprayed) and the leather is then polished to give it a black/ brown tone with a warm, vibrant glow. However, the traces of the horse’s life are not removed from this very durable and easy to care for fabric. Made for us by leather specialists Hack in Cologne.
Hack. Leather Goods with Character.
Behind Hack Lederware you find Christoph Hack, founder and fine bag maker with a studio in Cologne. For decades he has been working with a wide variety of leathers. Based on this experience, he designs his garments. For example, Hack exclusively processes leather with natural surfaces from Germany, Italy and Scandinavia into hard-wearing, functional clothing and genuine accessories. This is why the selected skins from cow, horse and deer document traces of animal life such as insect bites or thorny cracks. Such a leather gains it’s much-desired patina by movement and frequent wearing and proves a magnificent example of what happens when a leather garment is allowed to age with honour. It is this natural ageing process that gives Hack jackets their unique look. They are made up at the Hack headquarters in Cologne and a Polish partner company.
