Leather is a raw material that comes from a natural source – which is why meticulous quality control is so important. The ideal cut is selected from each hide for Passier saddles. This means that natural imperfections such as insect bites or scars are rarely found in hides on Passier products. As exclusively purely vegetable tanned leather without an artificial finish is used at Passier, Passier products still look natural and extremely high-quality even many years later.
The extremely soft processed and non-slip cow hide is used in the seat and knee inserts and provides especially comfortable seating.
The softest, most comfortable leather that is currently available on the market and suitable for saddles, it is finished specially for Passier with a wax coating. It is used in the seat, knee inserts, and panels, and is absolutely non-slip.
The glossy, smooth leather has been varnished on the surface or covered with a shiny, glassy film and can be found at our browbands, bridles and snaffles.
