Last year, in our efforts to constantly seek out new and unconventional materials, we introduced a Brown Reindeer leather from a small tannery in Norway using traditional vegetable-tanning techniques. The leather was difficult to import and incorporate into our production, but the finished product was one of the most interesting boots we had offered to date. This year we've worked with the same tannery to bring in a lighter, Toast coloured version of that same Reindeer leather. The combination of the wild reindeer hides and the gentle tanning process result in a leather that is high in character and easily broken in. You can expect a significant patina to begin developing almost immediately.
