a. Full Grain Leather: This is the highest quality leather, made from the top layer of the animal hide. It retains its natural grain pattern and has not been sanded or corrected. Full grain leather is known for its durability, breathability, and beautiful patina that develops over time.
b. Top Grain Leather: This is the second-highest quality leather, made from the layer below full grain leather. The surface is sanded and finished to remove imperfections, resulting in a more uniform appearance. Top grain leather is more pliable and less durable than full grain leather, but it still offers a high level of quality.
c. Genuine Leather: This grade includes leather made from the lower layers of the hide, which have been split from the top layers. Genuine leather may be sanded, embossed, or finished to improve its appearance. It is less durable and breathable than full grain or top grain leather but is more affordable.
d. Bonded Leather: The lowest grade of leather, bonded leather is made from leather scraps and fibers that have been bonded together using adhesives and then finished to resemble genuine leather. It is less durable, breathable, and often lacks the natural characteristics of higher-grade leathers.
