Cowhide has been used since ancient times to provide human beings with clothing and footwear; nowadays, its use goes much further, and for this reason, it is considered a quality product.
The first thing you should know is that cowhide leather is the most used in the manufacture of bags, clothing, hats, belts, wallets...this is due to its characteristics, such as certain rigidity, but still being adaptable, it is also soft to the touch, very resistant, and of excellent quality.
Other physical properties include:
- High tensile strength.

- Very high resistance to bending.
- High puncture resistance.
- Good thermal insulation.
- Leather is warm in winter and cool in summer.
- Resistance to wet and dry abrasion.

Because of all this, products made from cowhide are usually supple and breathable, can be dyed or left with their natural finish; they also reject moisture, retain their shape and are resistant to sun and heat damage, making them ideal for the outdoors.
And most importantly for you; their aging is slow, so they can last up to 5 times longer than other types of leather. Remember, they are products that we use constantly, opening and closing them several times during the day, in many cases, every day.
