Full Grain Leather


Definition of Full Grain Leather

Full grain leather is the top layer of an animal's hide. It retains the natural grain and texture of the animal, making it the highest quality of leather available.

We use this kind of leather for our products due to the following advantages:

  • Durability: It’s the most durable type of leather available that can withstand wear and tear to last for many years if properly cared for.
  • Natural beauty: It retains the natural grain and texture of the animal hide, making it highly attractive.
  • Comfort: Full grain leather is breathable and comfortable to wear, making it a popular choice for leather belts and collars.
  • Unique patina: It ages beautifully over time, developing a unique patina that adds to its character and charm.

To spot full grain leather, look for natural markings on the leather. These marks are a clear sign that the leather is minimally processed and therefore retains its natural grain and texture. 

The marks include branding scars or devil's rope marks the animal obtained during its lifetime. Our Scarred Range Collection features leather items such as key fobs, coaster sets, wallets, and mouse pads with scars that tell a story.

Here is a short video on how we made a desk pad from our full grain leather hide:

To maintain the quality and appearance of full grain leather products, proper cleaning and maintenance are essential. 

Use a dry cloth to remove any surface dust on the seams, creases, and corners of the leather item then clean using a mild soap solution and a cloth.

Allow the leather to air dry then apply a leather conditioner to keep it supple and moisturized.
