It's cool. It's classic. It's leather!
So, what's so wonderful
about leather? Ask this of a leather connoisseur and
you have an answer - the touch and scent! Leather
products range from wallets, gloves and vests to briefcases,
belts, jackets, footwear and more.
The first leather objects were primarily used for protection.
The decorative potential of leather was realised over
a period of time. The timeless charm of leather lies
in itsluxurious texture, warm colour, wholesome
aroma, and exceptional durability.
Leather usually comes from lambskin or cowhide.
It is shaved horizontally, giving layers and is tumble-washed
in chemicals or natural vegetable oil. This is done
to take out the stiffness and to give a soft feel to
the leather. Sometimes it is tanned and colour is sprayed
Genuine leather is recognised
by tone variations and creases in the end products.
It absorbs oils and other moisture it comes in contact
Leather ages gracefully
and lasts for a long time, if given proper care.
Often made from the same materials, they require
a minimum care to keep the purchase looking great.
With growing concerns about the environment, artificial
leather offers a fresh alternative to animal leather
and is widely accepted. They possess the same attributes
of real leather like texture, colour and are cheaper
to manufacture. If leather is not to your taste, try
products made from synthetic materials or artificial
leather, which look just as classy.
