That would be correct. The Haas products mentioned are double tanned or re-tanned. Which is why Utah can still age unlike the straight Chrome tanned Horween product. Degermann (another French tannery) has similar leathers across their lines.The article name from the tannery is Novonappa. Delapre is how EG calls it (Hermes calls it Barenia). Utah is name EG uses for Novonappa with the hatch emboss.
Novanappa is also combination tanned/ veg retan; not a straight veg tan.
The toggle dried horween hatchgrain article you are talking about must be the Arlington. I have seen Stefano Bemer uses a Horsefront leather with hatchgrain emboss, probably exclusive to them.
The Arlington is not however exclusive to SB. Any maker or individual can request the Arlington version from Horween. Just so happens that Italian suppliers have primarily the Arlington at their disposal. Italian makers tend to like it because it is a more open grain and softer temper compared to the standard version.
