Top Grain Leather Vs Full Grain Leather

- Nov 14, 2019-

The strongest and most durable part of the hide of an animal is just  below the hair. The grain pattern in this part of the hide is very tight, and the leather made from here is called "full-grain" leather. 


Full-grain leather is the strongest and most durable leather. Additionally, since the grain is so tight, it resists moisture very well. Over time, full-grain leather will look nicer and nicer. 


Top grain leather is similar to full-grain leather, except that the top couple millimeters have been sanded and buffed to take away imperfections. With the top layer removed, the leather will have a more uniform finish, but it won't be as durable—and it will break down much faster.


Both full-grain leather and top grain leather are used in making wallets, diary cover and portfolios. It depends on your budget. Any idea, pls contact us for further discussion.
