Welcome Our Presentation About Leather
How Leather is made. Wholesale Leather, Bulk Leather, Leather Bulk Leather can be made from cows, pigs, goats, and sheep; exotic animals such as alligators, ostriches, and kangaroos; and even dogs and cats, who are slaughtered for their meat and skin in China, which exports their skins around the world.
Animal hides are soaked in bactericides and detergents to remove the remaining protein and prevent the growth of bacteria. • They are then sent to a tannery to be preserved and soften. Once again they are soaked. This time in tannic acid solution. • The tanned hides are washed and cut to a desired thickness. They are then go through a dry process. • They may be streched to avoid shrinkage and constantly sprayed with soap and water to avoid stiffness. Once dry, they are buffed.
There are four major types of Leather. • Full-grain leather has not been sanded or buffed to remove the natural markings. • Top-grain leather is the top part of full-grain leather that has been split. • Corrected-grain leather has an artificial grain added to the surface and are most common for pigmented leather. • Split leather is the bottom half of top-grain leather
Types of Leather There are four major types of leather. • Full-grain leather has not been sanded or buffed to remove the natural markings. It is the most expensive leather, but gives it great strength, durability, and breathability • Top-grain leather is the top part of full-grain leather that has been split. It is then buffed and coated resulting in less breathability. It is the second highest quality leather, but is also the most common. • Corrected-grain leather has an artificial grain added to the surface and are most common for pigmented leather • Split leather is the bottom half of top-grain leather, but it can be further broken in down into multiple layers.
