Types Of Leather

Well, there are different types of leather available in the market. So you may get confused regarding which one to buy. This answer can guide you about the quality and most preferred leathers:

1.Full grain leather

This is undoubtedly one of the best leather in the market. This leather is considered a 100% animal hide that remains untreated and uncorrected. The full-grain leathers are used for several pieces of furniture, wallets, shoes, handbags, and so on. The touch is soft but still tough and durable.

2.Top grain leather

This is another best leather after full-grain leather. This one undergoes the correction process. This leather is often called semi-aniline or aniline. Aniline leather means leather that has been dyed and not passed through any other treatment. The semi-aniline means the leather has been dyed and provided a protective coating. This prevents staining to a great extent. And we came across soft leather.

This is one of the top grain cattle leather sanded on the grain side. This provides the touch of short protein fibers. So we get to see the velvet-like surface. Nubuck leather is wear-resistant. This leather is available in white and other colors as well.
