Bison leather, also known as "buffalo leather," is one of the most durable and attractive leathers available. This leather is over 40 percent stronger than cowhide leather, and its unique patterns are as individual to the animal as a fingerprint. For these reasons, leather made from bison hide is among the most prized varieties of wholesale leather.
Since this leather is highly resistant to scratching or tearing, work boots, chaps, pants, and coats made from this leather can be worn for years or even decades without damage. Even cacti or thorny underbrush cannot damage this tough leather, making it a popular choice for ranchers and cowboys.
Further, leather made from bison hides is resistant to stretching, which means that it can be worn again and again without losing its shape. This quality makes it a good choice for clothing that gets a lot of wear.
Leather made from bison hide is porous, allowing air to circulate. The air circulation acts as a natural cooling system, preventing you from overheating or becoming too cold while wearing the leather.
To care for your leather, wipe it with warm, soapy water to remove dust or dirt. Use a leather conditioning product that is specifically made for bison hide to keep the leather looking its best. Do not use heavy or oily conditioners that are meant for cowhide leather because they will clog the pores in the bison hide, preventing air from circulating.
