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.
