Overview text about the different levels of leather quality for cow leather

 

Full Grain

Text about what Full Grain leather is. Outer layer of the hide. Part exposed to the elements. Develops a patina. Most expensive since it is made from the highest quality hides--can't shave off nicks and abrasions the animal gets. Breaks in as opposed to wearing out

Top Grain

Top layer of the leather is shaved off to remove any imperfections in the hide. Weaker and not as durable as a result. To compensate, the outer layer is usually coated in urethane, which protects it from the elements. As a result, it is more resistant to abrasions, though will not age like full grain leather

Corrected Grain

Lowest quality hides used. As a result, more of the layers need to be shaved off. To compensate, a new, faux, grain is stamped on.

Splits (Suede)
