It is believed that the highest quality leather is made from the skins of cows (bull, calf). It is used for shoes, clothing mostly in jackets, furniture upholstery, etc. Skin from sheep or goat skins (sheepskin, goat) is mainly used with hair (as fur). The skin from pig skins is elastic but has a persistent characteristic smell, so it is valued lower than others. Leather from crocodile, Python, Stingray, ostrich, and other exotic animals is used for the production of leather goods, clothing, shoes, and other business lines.

There are many classifications of leather, which differ in the type and age of the animals from which they are obtained, as well as in the methods of processing and coloring. Here are some examples:
Morocco is leather made of vegetable-tanned goatskins, lightly grained, and brightly colored.
Velour – made from leather with defects on the front surface. This leather is chrome tanned, trimmed from the flesh side under the velvet using a special grinding.
Suede-leather made from the skins of elk, reindeer, wild goat, etc. fat-tanned. The pile is thick, but not fluffy and without Shine. The skin is soft and poorly absorbs water.
Shagreen-soft vegetable-tanned leather:
Shagreen-soft vegetable-tanned leather made from sheep or goat skins, which has a beautiful small relief pattern. From exotic leathers to this type of skin is the skin of the sea Stingray.
What is the difference between natural leather, sanded, and split?
Leather with a natural facial coating-it turns out when the skin was salted, soaked (made it like a steam room), made sure that all the hairs fell out of it, then tanned and painted. Natural leather has almost no coating, only a little painting.
Polished and embossed leather is made from animal skins that have natural defects. For example, if the skin was bitten by insects and deposited their larvae in it, as a result of which a hole was formed in it, which is no longer tightened, or there were scratches on the skin from tree branches, then such defects are removed by grinding during the production of leather. Then, for the skin to form a smooth surface, a certain coating is applied to it, the so-called soil, because of which, along with painting, the skin already breathes worse and, accordingly, is less valued.
If priming is not enough to correct the skin, then the stamping process is used, in which large plates are pressed into the heated skin. Pressing can produce a smooth surface of the skin or with a different pattern. Visually distinguish the skin from embossed not embossed it is possible, but not likely on the front side.
