Leather is a natural product. With correct care, leather offers a long life service in the most diverse uses. Soft and pleasant in the touch, it is supple yet hard-wearing and breathable.
Kieffer quality products are made from cowhide originating mainly from Italy and Germany. The leather is vegetal-tanned. This means that only natural and environmentally easily degradable tanning agents may be used to make the hides durable, supple and tension-proof. It takes very sophisticated and time-consuming processing methods to produce leather which meets the high quality requirements.
SECU® is a fabric which is firmly established as an alternative to leather. The main reasons for its success are its extreme sturdiness and durability. Moreover, this special synthetic fibre is water-repellent and breathable – ideal for everyday Equestrian use. No special care is required for Kieffer SECU® products. Cleaning with a damp cloth is all it takes.
Kieffer uses 100% rustproof fittings and buckles. They come in matching colours, either in chrome or brass coloured finish.
We do not use cheap iron hardware.
