Chaps is a rich and lush “ultra nap” genuine suede leather line featuring more than 40 beautiful, classic and vibrant designer-selected colors. The tanning process is what sets Chaps apart from other suedes, undergoing an expensive, time-intensive, double-retanning process to create rich, deep colors and water and stain resistance throughout the hide. However, because this leather is not sprayed with a topcoat and is a pure aniline, it is vulnerable to high abrasion and may fade in direct sunlight.
