Leather is a durable and flexible material created by the tanning of animal rawhide and skin, often cattle hide. It can be produced through manufacturing processes ranging from cottage industry to heavy industry.

Leather is used for various purposes including clothing (e.g. shoes, hats, jackets, skirts, trousers and belts), bookbindingleather wallpaper, and as a furniture covering. It is produced in a wide variety of types and styles and is decorated by a wide range of techniques.

The difference between full-grain leather and top grain leather is that full-grain is made from whole grains, top-grain is not and is real leather.
