When you want to buy a laptop bag, handmade leather bag or any product made out of leather, quality is of the utmost importance. There are a variety of leather types, and full grain leather is widely known as being the top tier option. But what is full grain leather and why do we use it? Let’s find out.
What is full grain leather?
Simply put, full grain is the most durable and strongest part of the animal’s skin. It’s situated under the animal’s hair. It’s not buffed or sanded, so it basically retains the natural appeal, without needing any specific modifications.
One of the core advantages of full grain leather is the fact that the grain surface is left intact. There’s no treatment before you apply surface coating. Thanks to that, the leather itself is more durable, it has a higher fiber strength too. Eventually, it creates great patina which further adds to its appeal and quality.
How do you identify full grain leather?
Full grain leather has patina that’s very hard to reproduce. Not only that, but on the smoother part of the leather you can even see some hair follicles and pores. This shows your full grain leather is of a very high quality. Even other things like small scars, grain texture variations and fat wrinkles show the style and character of full grain leather too. Sure, every piece of leather is unique, but these details all stand out and show the true quality and value of such a leather piece.
