Where Does Leather Come From?

Leather is a material created through the tanning of hides, pelts and skins of animals, mainly cows. Leather is a very important clothing material. Together with wood, leather formed the basis of much of ancient technology.

Today most leather is made from cow hides, but exceptions exist. Lamb and deer skin are used for soft leather in more expensive apparels. Kangaroo leather is used to make items which need to be strong but flexible, such as motorcycle gloves. Kangaroo leather is favored by motorcyclists specifically because of its lighter weight and higher abrasion resistance as compared to cowhide. Certain snakes and crocodiles have been hunted to near extinction, because the leather produced from them was once considered more exotic and beautiful.

In the 1970's, farming of ostriches for their feathers became popular. As a by product, ostrich leather became available. Ostrich leather is now being used by all the big fashion houses such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci. The characteristics of the leather are large goose pumps. This look is because of the large follicles from which feathers grew.
