Leather is one of the most commonly seen materials in many products. There are many different types of leather, before buying leather goods, you must know how to classify it first. Here are three types of leather.
Full-grain leather is luxury and has a smooth surface, it has few flaws. But it is the best quality and most prevalent type of leather. It resists moisture very well because the grain is tight. It gives the leather an aesthetic look and it will look nicer and nicer over time. It is usually used for making highest quality leather shoes and furniture.
Top-grain leather is also a high-quality leather. It is the second high quality and is less expensive than full-grain leather. People may prefer buying this leather because it is long-lasting and cheaper. However compare with full-grain leather, its durability may be lower.
Genuine leather means the product is made of real leather, but compare with other leather, genuine leather is the lowest in quality and it is made from the leftover of leather. Genuine leather does not last long or looks like high-quality leather. However, most of the people can afford a genuine leather product as they are not pricey.
