NewHide Technology

Full-grain leather uppers offer protection and comfort as well as durability against the elements.

What is NewHide?

Craghoppers NewHide leather uses an innovative tanning process which uses less water and energy. Traditional leather tanning uses a huge amount of water, this new process uses fewer chemicals, less energy and saves 60-84% of the water the traditional process would use.

Craghoppers work with the Leather Working Group (LWG) to ensure that the tanneries which provide the leather used in our products work to social and environmental best practices. We are pleased to say our collections are now sourced from 100% LWG certified tanneries.
