Nitapitalou, I came across a harness identical to the one in the pics and it's biothane. Identical at least in the pattern of the spots. Apparently there biothane and betathane. One is shiney like patent, the other dullish like leather.

I cant respond about the granite. I have bio with a work collar and love it. When it gets dirty or sweaty just spray it with the water hose. If its real back you can spray it with 409 and then spray it off with the hose, hang to dry.
I heard this weekend some one say for a show they would put their bio in the dishwasher, with no heat. Of course they had standard horses and breast plate collars. I don't compete and I don't want to take it all apart to get my draft size in the dishwasher.

Biothane is a trademarked brand of betathane. Betathane is the generic term used to describe coated web strap goods. Both products come with either shiney or dull finish. There are textured betathane products as well. All Biothane is betathane but all betathane is not biothane. We (I) use the term bio incorrectly just like I call a facial tissue a Kleenex. Most harness makers are going to use the betathane because it is the generic goods thus less costly.
