• Highest Quality

    Full grain leather is the highest quality of leather available. It is made from the top layer of the animal's skin, which is the strongest and most durable part. The surface of full grain leather has not been sanded or buffed to remove imperfections or blemishes, so it retains its natural texture and markings.

  • Durable and long-lasting

    Full grain leather is considered better than other types of leather because it is the most durable and long-lasting. The natural grain patterns and markings make each piece of full grain leather unique and more attractive. Additionally, as it ages, full grain leather develops a rich patina and becomes even more beautiful.

  • Full Grain vs Others

    Other types of leather, such as corrected grain leather or split grain leather, are made from lower-quality layers of the animal's skin and have been heavily processed to remove imperfections. As a result, these leathers are not as strong or durable as full grain leather and do not develop the same natural patina over time.
