Saddle Leather

SADDLE LEATHER

Timberline Saddle Company uses only top-quality vegetable tanned top-grain cowhide on its saddles. These leathers have not been skived and buffed to look perfect, but are Grade A hides with the full top-grain intact to ensure strength, integrity and long life.
We purchase our hides natural and undyed. Our "natural" leather is then oiled to a light golden color which darkens with time in the sun. We dye our own leather using mineral based dyes which attain a saturation point deep in the leather fibers.
The occasional blemish found in a natural smooth leather saddle indicates that it is a natural, full top-grain hide. Some blemishes, usually very slight, are to be expected.
When you receive your saddle it will be oiled and ready to go. We only use natural oils as not to damage the integrity of your saddle leather. A continuance of this care will ensure the life of your saddle for many years to come!

Remember when picking a color you can always darken the color by oiling it or setting it out in the sun, but you CAN NOT lighten it.

We offer Natural, Chestnut, Rust, Oxblood, Brown and Black. Each hide takes the dye differently. Like all leather we CAN NOT  guarantee the color to be exactly like the samples shown.
