StrideRidge uses two different kinds of leather tanneries. Wickett and Craig as well as Horween.
Horween Leather Company was founded in 1905. For more than 100 years and five generations, our goal has been to make the world's best leather. Making the best means doing lots of little things right. It means never mistaking fastest or cheapest with the best. It means always using formulas that do not cut corners and choosing components strictly for their quality.
Wickett & Craig, established in 1867 and based in the USA. Primarily, we use the English Bridle leather, and we have it prepared for us in a variety of thicknesses appropriate to the designs we sell.
English Bridle is a vegetable tanned leather that is drum dyed, hot stuffed, and fully finished. Environmentally friendly, natural Veg-Tanning results in a leather product of superior quality. The leather is supple but holds its shape very well. This leather has been used over the years in anything from strap goods in the equestrian trade to high-end fashion projects, this leather has stood the test of time.
A little bit more about Wickett & Craig in their own words:
Wickett & Craig of America
“Established in 1867, Wickett & Craig is the leading North American producer of vegetable-tanned leathers used in the manufacture of personal leather goods and equestrian products. Our tannery has been creating the finest quality leathers for discerning customers worldwide for over a century. Our production staff is comprised of knowledgeable, experienced and environmentally conscious professionals who take great pride in producing natural vegetable-tanned leathers of incomparable quality and beauty. For over 120 years, tanning operations were conducted at the original location in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In 1990, Wickett & Craig relocated to Curwensville, PA, USA. The current tannery is an 180,000 square foot, state-of-the-art, environmentally-conscious facility.” (Source: Wicket & Craig)
