Some information that you should know about leather products

The better the quality of Vintage Oversized Travel Tote Shoulder Bag, t, the less it has to be treated. In a premium quality hide or skin, the full natural grain is retained and exposed. One should see the "fat wrinkles," the natural markings, and the feel or hand should be supple and natural to the touch. Transforming hides and skins into leather is done in three basic phases: pre-tanning, tanning, and finishing. Whatever is done to a piece of leather after it is tanned is part of the finishing process.

This may include: dyeing, rolling, pressing, spraying, plasticizing, lacquering, antiquing, waxing, buffing, snuffing, embossing, glazing, waterproofing, stain-proofing, flame-proofing, or any other post-tanning treatment. Full-grain leathers are color-treated only by transparent aniline vegetable dyes, which shade or color the skins without concealing or obscuring natural markings or grain character. Some lower quality leathers, have been treated with a coating of pigmentation to help even out the color. Genuine, natural, un-pigmented and un-plasticized leather will breathe, thus maintaining their original structure. If the surface of the leather has been plasticized, as is the case for most lover quality leathers, the leather cannot breathe and may become stiff and woody. Following, is a short overview of the best kinds of leather. ---- Leather Bags Collection.
