Types of leather used to make leather goods and bags

Types of leather

A number of types of leather are used in the manufacture of quality leather bags, as well as various methods used to process and finish off the leather. The three main types are aniline, semi-aniline and pigmented. Aniline is the most natural looking type but is less resistant to soiling. Semi-aniline is more resistant to soiling and has a light coating for protection. Pigmented leather is coated with a polymer coating which makes it much more durable but lacks the natural look of untreated leather. Generally, calf-skin leather is used for its softness and durability. It then goes through various treatments and processes to give it colour, texture and to maintain its strength and durability for the various leather goods and bags produced. Leather may also be wax coated which adds to its shine, durability, makes it more water resistant and also easier to clean.

Manufacturing processes

One such process produces Saffiano leather, which is textured leather produced by machine press to give it its texture. This is known as a cross-hatch finish which is a special diagonal pattern. It is then treated with wax which makes it scratch resistant, more durable and much easier to clean.
