Here’s my little oldie, made out of light brown sueded elephant hide and kangaroo skin lacing.
As you can see, it’s no longer a light brown 😛
The leather darkened very dramatically when I dubbed it, and came out a dark brown.
Wasn’t too happy with the colour, so after some months I decided to dye it black.
Held up very well so far, considering it’s been sat on constantly – other than the obvious moulding and softening of the leathers, there’s little wear & tear 🙂
Some very interesting texturing has developed, and no one I’ve come across has ever successfully identified the leather, haha.
I will be retiring it after the Roy x Cone denim contest ends though…
It’s time I tried some other interesting leathers, and to be honest, I would not use sueded elephant hide again.
What should I replace it with?
