More About The Leather

What is full grain leather

Basically, leather is trillions of interwoven fibers. The closer you get to the surface, the smaller and denser become those fibers. Hence, the top layer is the strongest and the most durable cut one can buy. The term “Full Grain” is used to define that top, uppermost layer of the cow hide which was not sanded or polished.

What is vegetable tanned

When we speak about leather, obviously it needs to be preserved before it can be used for crafting and making goods. Vegetable tanning is actually the way leather hide is preserved. This method is one of the many possible, but its distinctive feature is in all-natural technique. Hides are soaked in certain tubs filled with natural solutions, like tree bark.

These extracts are dense, and when they bind to the hide, they fill in the gaps in the fibers. By filling these gaps the leather becomes even more durable and tight. After that, it is finished with a combination of transparent waxes and oils, which gives the leather a very soft feel. Every piece made of vegetable tanned leather has unique shades and nuances, which are a mark of genuineness.

What is pull-up effect

So, by now you know a bit more about full grain leather production and its tanning. We touched upon natural extracts and wax&oil finish so you can understand what is so called “pull-up”.

When full grain leather is stretched or pulled, the color migrates and becomes lighter in the pulled areas. Hence the term pull-up.

Basically, it happens because oils and waxes are displaced on the surface by a movement of the material. It is a characteristic of natural tanning processes.

Leather wrinkles

Other characteristics to take note of are wrinkles. As full grain leather is not sanded during production it preserves its natural look.

Normally, the cow has wrinkles where the skin was bent, like on the neck, near legs etc. These wrinkles are not removed on purpose. They show that leather is correctly processed full grain top hide.

Leather scars

Same as wrinkles, scars on leather hide are also preserved. During its life the animal may get scratches, insects bites or small wounds. As a result of natural healing there remains a scar.

After the hide is separated from the flash, these marks are left untouched as required by the technology.

Amazing quality and workmanship!

We ordered about twenty 5 x 8.5 covers with our custom logo and the athlete's initials on the covers as gifts. They arrived quickly and everything was perfect. **ALSO: THANK YOU for wrapping them in plastic because the delivery person left the box on the step of our home and we had a heavy downpour before we got back and thankfully you had them safely wrapped and sealed in a plastic bag so all were undamaged! That little extra care makes a difference. We are more than satisfied!
