I love it!!

The bag is beautiful.. so soft and so well made. It's perfect to tote my gear around in style.

Crazy horse leather is actually a cow leather. You may find this answer is too short, so we would like to give you more detail about this question.

Crazy horse leather also referred to as saddle leather is made by applying, a kind of wax to a full grain leather surface that has been buffed and smoothed out. The leather has been treated to look and feel aged while retaining its toughness. The more you use it, the better and more unique it looks.

Crazy horse leather is made by applying a special kind of wax to a full grain cow leather surface that has been smoothed out. Through the application of the wax, plays a very distinctive role in the uniqueness of crazy horse leather. It will cause small changes to the material's shape and appearance. This gives it a unique retro, vintage look which ages beautifully over time.
Simply wax itself. Wax is highly resistant to water and other liquids. So, when applied to leather it protects the leather fibers far better than that of any other substance used on leather today. This allows the crazy horse leather to withstand much of what is an issue for most other types of leather. It doesn't stain fabrics or clothing. Because of this, it is the ideal choice of leather for making vintage style leather bags. Also, every crazy horse leather bags are unique due to the this manufacturing process. It feels really great to think that you have a unique product with you.
As we mentioned before, each bag is unique due to special wax and manufacturing. This application makes every bag distinctive. They are durable and strong. Wax itself protects the leather from water or moisture-related damages. The wax strengthens the leather fibers to the point that when the fibers are rubbed or scratched the natural leather color changes a shade or two, without immediately reversing back.

Through wear, naturally, the crazy horse leather will become full of these scratches. The rubbed and scratched areas that show the changes in shades of color, are what reflects the so loved antique and vintage appearance.
