Types of leather
Different types of leather are used in the production of leather bags. Two of the most common types of leather are cowhide and lambskin. Cowhide leather has a noticeable texture, with a rough feeling to the touch, and one of its main peculiarities is durability. Lambskin leather has a soft and smooth texture, and it is fragile compared to cowhide leather.
Bags can be made also of other types of leather: exotic leather, for example, includes alligator, crocodile and caiman skin, which are appreciated for their compelling patterns. Alligator skin is thick, soft and flexible, with symmetrical scale patterns, whilst the patterns on crocodile skin tend to be less regular, and caiman skin much thinner.
Veco’s leather finishing chemicals are suitable for all leather types.
Tanning, used to prevent the skins from decomposing, whilst producing a flexible form suitable for the production of leather items, is fundamental in guaranteeing a prestigious and quality appearance to the final product. Veco creates and supplies complete systems of leather finishing chemicals appropriate for the creation of luxury leather bags. Our eco-friendly policy ensures our customer’s safety, as well as that of the environment.
