There’s a saying that goes, “Good things take time.” Fun fact for leather lovers: Bridle leather dog leashes are products of this notion. A labor-intensive process takes it from a piece of cowhide into its finished material. What you get is high-quality, soft leather that’s been treated with oils and wax.
