Full Grain Leather VS. Genuine Leather
All of our products are made from Premium Full Grain Leather because we expect them to last through years of use. Most leather products are made using “Genuine Leather” which is basically the plywood of leather. Genuine Leather is made from scrap leather that has been ground up into a fine dust and then glued into a sheet to form “leather”. This process obviously creates a weak material that won’t hold up to everyday use.
Full Grain Leather on the other hand is the unaltered, outer most layer of the hide, that has the tightest grain and the most strength. That is why we use Full Grain Leather for all of our products.
