How to choose the correct leather for your project

You may be wondering what the difference is between all these different types of leather. They all seem like they are made from animal skin and they look similar. But there are some key differences in the type of leather that you choose for your project. The first thing to keep in mind when choosing a type of leather is the type of finish that you want. For example, if you want a more natural looking finish with some imperfections, then veg tanned leather may be best for you. If you want something that looks very polished and perfect, then shell cordovan may work best for your project. Another thing to consider when choosing a type of leather is the durability and strength. You would not want to use an exotic leather if you need something that could stand up to a lot of wear and tear on a daily basic. Cost will also play a big factor in your final choice, as although the leathers are for similar uses, their costs differ dramatically, which when pricing for a customer needs to be advised in advance. Most clients are aware of the nuances between leather s but for those that don’t, it’s certainly good to have open conversations before starting a project.
