What is Full Grain Leather?

What is Full Grain Leather?

November 14, 2018

A lot of you have asked us this question. So here it is-

Full Grain is the topmost layer of leather. The pattern of grain on this layer is the densest, making it the strongest and most durable part of the leather. Since the grain is dense, it is able to resist moisture better than any other leather. As the leather ages with use, it develops a shiny layer on the surface called patina. With use, the leather also becomes soft and flexible making the 'used' look even more appealing. The change in colour appears even faster when the leather is completely untreated. Full-grain is regarded as the highest quality of leather and comprises only 8% of total world leather production. Bags and accessories made out of full-grain leather lasts for almost a decade and is usually preferred by people who are looking for higher quality in products and celebrate the imperfections of this beautiful natural material.

..So what's genuine leather?
Genuine leather can be any part of leather which in turn does not guarantee good quality and durability. Genuine leather is used abundantly as the costs the significantly reduced but in turn compromising the quality of a product.

If you are buying leather, make sure it is of good quality!
