J&FJ BAKER WAXED FLESH CALF - BLACK - 1.3/1.5mm

All the calf skins are from locally bred herds. Following 2 weeks in the limeyard, they are pit tanned in Oak Bark for 3 months. The dressing slicked into the flesh side is a special recipe that has remained a secret within the Baker household since time in memorial.


Waxed calf was traditionally used in the manufacturing of riding and hunting boots. After a day’s hunting, the surfs or household staff would “bone” the front of the boots where the vamp has been blocked. To do this, they would use the fatty bone of a joint of meat that has been served to their employers and guests. As the vamp is used inside out, the boots will be particularly scratched as the rider had jumped fences and gates whilst chasing the prize. “Boning” allowed the boots to be re-oiled with the fatty tissues of the meat joint restoring it to its former glory!
