About the Material
Horsehair is a wonderful traditional fabric, woven in England since the 18th century. Originally woven from the tails of working Shire horses which were cropped for safety, the horsehair used in this piece is woven with cotton on original wooden looms. Specially selected European bullskin is tanned to emphasize the natural grain of the leather. Tanned with a combination of mineral and vegetable agents, the bullskin is extremely durable. Drum dyed, the colours are clear and deep, making use of dyes selected for their richness and light fastness.
Maintain the beauty of your Asprey bullskin & horsehair product to ensure it endures though time.
