At first glance appears to be a piece of leather to be composed of a single layer. But appearances can be deceptive. The untreated animal skin consists of three layers: the lower skin, the dermis and the epidermis. From the so-called corium (dermis) the commercial leather is obtained. This layer is in turn made up of two individual layers together: The outer papillary with mostly smooth to slightly pitted texture and the inner reticular with coarser fibers. Depending on the further use of the leather, it is split up into these layers. From the resulting split leather wide variety of products can be made.

The smoother cuticle is processed in several steps to leather of the highest quality. This usually very supple leather is effectively protected from dirt and moisture by the treatment. It is mainly used in the production of bags, shoes and clothing.

Animal Diversity

Many everyday products are made of sturdy pig and cow leather. It is a by-product of food production and is therefore readily available and inexpensive. Thanks to its high durability, it often comes as shoe leather is used.

For luxury leather products such as gloves, bags and fashion accessories, is usually used goat or calf leather. These leathers are distinguished by high strength despite special softness and smooth surface structure.

Goats are located in many regions of the world. With 8 to 10% of the world production of leather is goatskin third after cowhide and sheepskin. In contrast to the sheepskin it has no fat accumulation and therefore more resistant and lighter at the same time.

calfskin is usually of South American or European origin. By definition, it comes from the young of cattle with an age of less than one year and weighing less than 150 pounds. It is characterized by a strong and uniform structure and is considered very high quality.

From the hide for leather

The tanning is the most important process in the production of leather. Ötzi's lifetime raw animal skin was preserved by a treatment with grease and smoke. This was the original form of tanning. This process was defeated in the course of history many changes and improvements.

Modern tanning process, the fibers of the dermis form a chemical compound with the tanning agents used. These substances prevent hardening of the leather, and protect it from oxidation and decay. At the same time, they stabilize the animal skin against environmental influences and the swelling caused by moisture. Nowadays leather is prepared mostly by means of the so-called combination tanning for further processing.
