Pueblo leather is special. It’s different from the two types of leather we’ve mentioned in this article. Unlike Horween Chromexcel leather, Pueblo originated far from the United States - in the region that also brought to life pizza and spaghettis. That’s right - Italy! Pueblo leather originated in San Miniato, Italy, specifically in a tannery called Badalassi Carlo. For over 40 years Badalassi Carlo has produced top-quality leathers. Nowadays, they’re known as one of the best tanneries worldwide. This specific type of leather is vegetable-tanned, which makes it look like it’s suede. Don’t worry, it’s not. If you look closely, you’ll find that Pueblo has a matte finished with some white scratches, which make it look more elegant and luxurious. Besides, unlike other kinds of leather, Pueblo gives off a specific fantastic smell. The main reason why this leather is so luxurious is that its making doesn’t include any chemicals. Thus, it has a natural beauty. We love it! Do you? If you have Pueblo leather, you won’t be able to stretch it. Likewise, it doesn’t crease much. It’s greatly used for watch straps.
Calf leather is a very common type of leather different companies produce. As its name suggests, it’s made from a calf. Among all kinds of leather, this is chosen by many companies due to its versatility. If you compare calfskin with other kinds, you'll probably notice this leather has an incredible texture, lasts long and is immensely soft. Since calf leather comes from a younger animal, it has high amounts of collagen. Thus, calfskin is usually softer than aged leather due to its composition. However, although calfskin is softer, some people prefer aged leather due to cosmetic reasons. Nonetheless, if you want something with a different texture, this one is for you. You'll probably love the way calfskin looks and feels since the first time you wear it. Besides, it's immensely durable due to the way it's made. Calfskin is often used to produce many different things. Among the most common ones, we can find straps of all kinds because this leather is incredibly versatile.
