About Leather Skins
Leather - An animal pelt which has been tanned (chemical and mechanical process to eliminate perishables) and turned into a material.
Full-grain - The original, unaltered hide which has had the hair removed. Shows the full grain of the animal. High quality.
Lambskin - Leather from a young sheep or lamb.
Kidskin - Leather from a young goat.
Calfskin - Leather from young bovine (cow).
Cowhide - Leather from a mature cow.
Shearling (some pros classify this as a fur) - Leather from sheep with the wool still attached.
Suede - The flesh side (underside) of the leather is buffed to produce a nap.
Cordovan - From the portion of the hide called the shell, which is produced with vegetable dyes and results in a very high-quality piece (usually shoes) that have an always-polished look.
Embossed - A pattern that is applied using extreme pressure to leather. Often this produces the look of another type skin (crocodile, alligator, ostrich, etc.)
Split - The hide is sliced into pieces to give uniform thickness and the inside (flesh side) is finished as suede.
Nubuck - Leather that is buffed on the grain (hair) side of the grain to produce a velvety fine nap.
Patent - Leather that has a high gloss finish produced by oils, varnish and resin.
In general, the less the skin has been treated (dyed, corrected, etc.) the higher the quality of the piece.
Leather should look natural, smell good and have a great hand (feel great when you touch it.)
