Leather is created from the hides of animals that have been removed and processed through a wide variety of techniques, including tanning, scraping, and boiling, to produce many things we use in life on a daily basis.

The most expensive leathers today are tanned using rose otto and emulsion oils as opposed to vegetable oils and man-made emulsions. Notice the variety of hides used in leather products, especially with regards to clothing and accessories in the fashion world. Cowhide, goatskin, lamb skin, ostrich, snake, eels; the more exotic, the more value is placed on them.

Remember the following when making a leather purchase:  most leathers don’t do well in wet weather, so don’t expose your leather products to the rain. We also recommend picking smaller garments, as leather will expand with use. Now get out there and incorporate some leather into your wardrobe!
