From raw hide to leather

Simply put, leather is tanned hide (skin), which is treated so that its natural strength and elasticity are preserved. Tanning yields a material that is durable, while being pliable and having a natural ability to breathe. Leather possesses the remarkable property of becoming more beautiful with time. It is one of the few materials in the fashion industry for which fragrance is an essential part of the quality experience. It is no wonder that we like what we do. What we call hide is leather from smaller animals, such as goats, lambs, calves, or pigs. Both words mean more or less the same thing.

Full grain leather

The strongest and most durable part of an animal’s hide is just below the hair. The grain pattern in this part of the hide is very tight, and leather made from it is called \\"full-grain\\" leather.


Nubuck leather is easily sanded for a matted, smooth surface.

Nappa leather

This is the name for full-grain leather from smaller animals, such as lambs, kids or calves.

Embossed grain

Full grain leather that is embossed so that it has a pattern, such as alligator leather.

Split leather

The layer of the raw hide that is closest to the animal's body is generally called split. This is the layer that remains when the grain leather is separated from the raw hide.


When leather is roughened mechanically to a velvet-like texture, it is called suede.

Coated split

This is a process to give split leather a color or structure to resemble a grain leather.

Bonded leather

This is a leather in which left-over parts from other types of leather production are bound together to generate bigger pieces of leather.
