Leather Fabrics

Leather refers to a wide variety of treated animal skins or hides. Different processing methods lead to different types of leather. Animal hides can be processed in a way that retains the hair or fur on the outside – this type of leather is usually called fur fabric. If the hair or fur is scraped off, the leather is called just that –leather. The third kind of finish is called suede – this is leather that either naturally has a napped finish, or has had one created by brushing soft or split leather. Whether fur, standard leather, or suede, leather fabric has been used for many years as a tough, durable material for creating all kinds of garments and accessories.
