Y’2 Leather’s Horsehide Selection
Eco Horse - Using a selected degree of quality from Europe, the material is finished in its natural state without using scratches or scratches without using extra chemicals. Since I have tightened the leather quite a bit, I have continued it for about 20%. It is a material that gives a unique deep luster to the tannins as you wear it, while the leather is squeaking. About 16mm.
Saddle Horse - Using a selected degree of quality from Europe, the material is finished in its natural state without using scratches or scratches without using extra chemicals. Tannin is light, so it takes time and cost, but it is also characteristic that delicateness is tight and it is difficult to grow. It's so nice that the leather is burnt enough to wear. Thickness around 1.5mm.
Hand Dyeing Horse - After finishing the grouped leather with tannin for a long time, it was dyed by hand with a tanner one by one to give a feeling of unevenness. This leather has a vegetable tanned base. By repeating hand dyeing many times, a unique gradation is created. Since it is hand dyed, the color of each half-cut leather is different and it is the only item in the world. Thickness around 1,4mm.
Hand Oil Horse - The thickness of the leather, which is light with chrome, and has relatively few scratches, is relighted with tannin using a tanner specialized for bluehide. In addition, leather that has been carefully coated with wax oil by hand using a tanner. The leather has a very good oily feel and is characterized by a unique hand-painted unevenness, with a thickness of around 1.5 mm.
Oil Wax Horse - The tannins specialized in bluehide are used to lighten leather that has been thickly fought with chrome and has relatively few scratches. In addition, the wax is carefully applied by hand using a tanner, and heat is applied. After that, remove the wax with hot water and add the wax again to finish the process. It's a very labor-intensive process, but it is a material with a beautiful oily feel and WAX color. After thickness 1.5mm.
HV Horse - After tying with chrome, dye the base once, then apply paraffin (region) chemical, and finish it a few days later. At the time of finishing, an iron is applied, but due to the heat, the rose fins raise the color of the base, causing the leather to appear uneven. It is a combination of tannins, so the leather is bulging and thick. The material that you can wear again and enjoy the aging. After a thickness of 1,4 mm.
Collage Horse - We select wet blue leather that is thick and has few scratches when parked in chrome, and relighted with tannin. Leather absorbs tannins well, so it is tight and tight.

Aniline Horse Hide - A material that contains a rich amount of oil in high-quality horsehide, randomly creates unevenness with dye, and then collects it with high temperature heat to create unique unevenness and luster in iron paintings. To make the best use of the texture, some scratches peculiar to leather opening can be seen, but the leather finished without hiding it. The unique luster of aniline dye is beautiful. Tea core base. Thickness around1.3mm.
Veg Chrome Horse - Half of the leather that has undergone chrome is thick and has a large thickness. The material in which the leather without the pickle chrome (theory black) is re-tanned. The tannins are distributed more because the chrome is pulled out a little more than the usual combination. Therefore, the leather is thick and absorbs the tannin sufficiently, so the fibers are tight. This is also a tea core. Thickness 1.6 mm.
Indigo Horse - Made from European horsehide that the vegetable tanned and then indigo dyed in the way Y'2 Leather discovered was the best for color, luster and adhesion to the horsehide. Normally NDIGO dye does not adhere to leather. Through the trial and error of Tanner over many years, we succeeded in successfully attaching INDIGO. The Y'2 LEATHER product was released once in 2012, but it has been revived with the cooperation of many requests and tanner. It is rare in INDIGO, but it is reproduced in HORSE HIDE. There is some discoloration, but I would like you to experience INDIGO. Thickness around 1.3mm.

Unlike suede, it is a layer of silver painting, so it is a material that easily reveals the characteristics of leather.
