These are the characteristics you have to look at when buying leather. At Pellein, you will exclusively find full-grain leathers, that is leather made with the best part of hides. Then, our leathers go through different processes, as to have different finishings: nappa leather, vegetable-tanned leather with vintage effect, suede, perforated leather, pull-up leather, and so on.
