Genuine Leather vs. Our Leather

We only use only the best - Full Grain leather. 

You've probably heard of "genuine leather". That title does not mean that the product is made of top leather but it means it is the lowest quality of all products made out of real leather. 

Goods marked as genuine leather will be several layers of low-quality leather bonded together with glue and then painted to look uniform. It's made from what is left over when the other, higher grades are stripped away for pricier projects. That is why it flakes, tears, and does not last.

On the other hand, Full Grain Leather is the highest grade of leather. It is the top cut of the skin / hide which is where all of the strength, durability, and other awesome qualities of leather are.
