    Buffalo Leather for upholstery

    The strength and elasticity of Buffalo Leather makes it ideal for upholstery purposes and as a consequence it is widely used throughout the world for the manufacture of high-quality products.  It is resistant to flame, and its strong fibres repel dirt, making it anti-allergenic. It is also used for high end car upholstery by manufacturers such as BMW.

    Buffalo Leather saddles

    Cowhide is the most popular leather used in saddle making but Buffalo leather is an increasingly popular alternative, indeed it is sometimes referred to as English Saddle leather. Its textured surface provides particularly good grip and it is extremely durable and scratch resistant.
