Quality leather for over 80 years.
ChahinLeather™ takes pride in the leather they produce and the services they provide. Although new technologies in the industry develop and they utilized, there are some things that remain constant such as their dedication to producing high quality, full grain leather.
Chahin Leather is still produced using pit tanning and drum stuffing techniques.
Strap leathers are 100% vegetable tanned using an artisanal pit tanning process that takes nearly four weeks. After the tanning process is complete, the leather is drum dyed.
Strap leather takes tooling extremely well and also oils and dyes uniformly. Products made with this leather will develop a beautiful patina with use over time.
Our bridle leather is fully finished with a waxy feel and a beautiful sheen. After the vegetable tanning process, the leather is hot stuffed with oils and tallows that penetrate through the hides, giving the leather a smooth, rich cut. The bridle leather is weather-resistant due to these oils and waxes. After the tanning process is complete, the leather is drum dyed for uniform coloring.

ChahinLeather™ latigo is produced using a chrome tannage followed by a vegetable re-tan for maximum durability. This double process tanning method gives the leather tensile strength and water resistance while maintaining the look and feel of vegetable tanned leather. After the tanning process is complete, the leather is placed in a stuffing drum with tallows and waxes then drum dyed for uniform coloring. This leather is strong and is able to withstand the elements yet flexible and supple.
