The Allen - Ridge Kudu Original (Factory Samples)


There is nothing quite like kudu leather. Kudu are antelope who roam freely in Southern and Eastern Africa. While trying to evade larger predators, kudu often graze near thorn trees. Since they are often preyed upon and due to their grazing habits, antelope leather will often have scars and imperfection which help tell the story of how the animal lived.

Why are these being sold as samples/seconds? This Ridge kudu models is leftover from sampling different size runs and leather at the factory. All of these models were made to test out different areas of the hide through pullovers, cutting/stitching and heat applications.
