Get your leather good and wet, find a rough section of concrete or pavement place some cellophane down place your leather face down on the cellophane, weight it down and leave it for a little while. A piece with a lot of cracks makes a really interesting pattern

I have some leather that resembles the one you showed.  If I had to guess, I would say it is faux-distressed, meaning it has a finish sprayed onto the surface that makes it look weathered or distressed.  Mine has the little black spots and they can be felt, so they must be embossed somehow.  The leather I have was sourced at Springfield leather, is about 3-4 oz. max. and is definitely chrome-tanned.
