Horween Calf Hide, full grain leather.
As one might assume, are smaller and lighter in weight (less thick) when compared to steer or cowhide. One major difference between a cow/steerhide and a calfskin is the appearance of the grain, which tends to be finer on calf. I deliberately say "finer" and not "better" because they are just different, and I wouldn't say that one is necessarily better than the other based solely on grain appearance. From a production and yield standpoint, cow/steerhide is always better.
The Horween Leather Company has set the standard for the highest quality leathers since 1905. Horween offer a wide range of tannages from their vegetable tanned Genuine Shell Cordovan to Sport Leathers and Footwear Leathers, such as Chromexcel. As always, all of leather is processed at their location on the corner of Elston and Ashland in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
