What Is Real Leather?

Posted by Eric Vlessing

Leather is the skin of an animal, with the hair removed, that has been prepared for use by tanning or a similar process designed to preserve it and make it pliable or supple when dry.

Unlike other products, leather is not regulated to have a label that lists its “content”. When you buy an article of clothing the content label tells you the percentage of the different fibers used. On food we have a listing of its ingredients. So why not leather?

So what should you ask when buying leather?

  • The statement “It is 100% leather, doesn’t tell you anything”!
  • What grade is the leather?  Is it corrected top grain, full grain, split or bi-cast?
  • Is it “bonded leather”? If the answer is “yes”, then it is NOT a leather product at all!  Bonded leather is man-made material and not genuine leather.  Buyer beware.

For more information on Top Grain, Full Grain, Split, Bi-cast & Bonded Leather read our Buyers Guide and Our Quality Leather.

At Coja we only use Top and Full Grain cow/steer hides.
