does exactly what is says on the packet. It may be calf leather or a “split” from lower down in the hide like corrected leather. It is, however, finished with waxy oils, while corrected leather is coated and calf leather is simply polished. This gives waxed leather a matt finish that sheds water well – it can be seen on the Loake Chatsworth Chelsea Boot shown here. It is kept in good condition with further wax – as described here.
