  •  Natural Markings

Even the best leather has natural markings, which are analogous to fingerprints.  They distinguish genuine leather from man-made materials.  Some marks which can appear on the surface of leather are healed scratches, barbed wire marks, wrinkles and insect bites.  Any of these markings may be present on your leather goods at home and is your assurance that you have a true top grain hide. Leather is a natural product; grain pattern and colour may vary from hide to hide and within the hide. 

  • Colour Variations

 Colour variations also occur in aniline leathers. During the dyeing process, since pigments are not used, each hide absorbs the dye in varying amounts; much like wood varies when stained. A parts of shoe may have a slightly different shade on its quarter or counter or vamp,  because pieces were cut from different parts of the hide, this is not a material defect, but evidence that it is natural leather.

  • Shades And Tones

 Leather is unique as a covering. Surface features testify to the authenticity of natural leather. Variation across a hide, density of grain, creases and folds are distinctive characteristics, much like the grain of a fine piece of wood. Leather is not like a bolt of cloth. On a sofa, five hides may be utilized which will blend and complement, but will never be identical. Like any natural product, grain pattern and colour may vary from hide to hide and within each individual hide. In the dying process, no pigments are used, so each hide absorbs "colour" based on its individual cell structure. Each area of the hide will absorb dye in varying amounts, and thus be darker or lighter than other areas; much like wood varies in colour when stained. This explains why an arm of a leather sofa may have a different shade than the cushions or the back of the sofa. They were simply cut from different parts of the same hide.

 

  •  Healed Scars And Scratches

 Healed scratches are reflective of the cow’s lifelong encounters. These healed scratch marks are evidence of this cow's unsheltered life. These form as a result of barbed wire scratches, disease and infestation or by horns of other cattle. The new, healed skin is as strong as the remainder of the hide.  Markings on your leather goods are natural, and in no way affect the strength or wear ability of the leather. These unique characteristics are your assurance of genuine leather. 

  •  Wrinkles

 Neck and shoulder creases appear as elongated furrows. Wrinkles naturally occur in a hide as a result of the neck stretching and contracting. Skin located on the neck of a cow is full and loose. This enables the cow to have the flexibility it needs to move its head while grazing. Wrinkles, naturally occur in the hide.

  • Variation In Grains

 Variations in grain pattern occur during the life of a cow. The grain is relatively tight across the backbone while it may be very loose in the belly and flank areas. The looser areas consequently have more stretch. Graining, like human fingerprints, is unique to each individual hide. 

  • Veins

 Growth marks and veins are an indication of the age of the animal and in that respect are similar to the graining on a piece of timber. They range from often quite pronounced marks in the neck area to subtle bands across the hide perpendicular to the backbone. Again, these are quite natural and are used in furniture and footwear. 

  • Stretch Marks

 Stretch marks appear in cowhides for the same reasons they do in humans. The process of calving requires the stretching of the skin to accommodate the new calf.  Nothing could be more natural. Stretch marks are used in leather furniture and shoes
