Horween Leather

Quality. Character. Tradition.

Why Horween?

Here at Nomad, we are always on the lookout for high-quality, long-lasting materials. Our search brought us to Horween Leather Company, one of the oldest continually operated tanneries in the United States. Not only did we find a leather versatile enough for our purposes, but we were also excited by the idea of gear that becomes unique to its owner through patina.


Unrivaled Craftsmanship

Quality and Craftsmanship

Horween’s commitment to detail matches our own dedication to quality and craftsmanship. While Horween leather is not the easiest or cheapest material to work with — far from it, in fact — we believe that its high quality and unique ability to develop a rich patina is worth the extra time and effort.

Better With Time

Unlike other mass-produced leathers, Horween leather is vegetable tanned the old fashioned way. From start to finish, the tanning process can take up to two months. The result is an unrivaled leather that gets better and better with time. With daily use, your leather gear will buff out marks and scratches into a rich and lustrous patina that is exclusively yours. No two leather items are the same and each tells its own story.

Embracing Imperfection

It is important to us to stand against the tide of products that all look and feel the same and instead build items with character. Horween leather is minimally treated, preserving many of the natural features of the hide; rather than correcting for blemishes or color variation, the Horween team embraces these imperfections as signs of authenticity and personality.
