Natural Grain Leathers:- A collection of "enhanced" natural leathers that have been embossed with additional natural graining. Sometimes hand-wiped with a complementary colour to produce the most sought-after appearance. (Hand-wipe: Sometimes called "hand-tipped" or "gilding," this is a hand application by skilled workers of one or more complementary or contrasting colours as highlights, shadows or "aging".)

Asian Plated Buffalo:- This leather is embossed to replicate the grain texture of Asian or Cape Buffalo.

Elk:- Very rugged leather with a pebbly texture, a soft, pliable hand and a slightly stretchy cross section.

Finished Cowhide:- Leather from the mature female bovine. This leather has a coating applied so as to get different finishes like matt, satin, gloss or high-gloss. It also adds to its utility, durability and clean-ability. Most leathers throughout the world are tanned and finished to get these results.

Genuine Reptile and Exotic Leathers:- Many of these patterns and looks are available embossed onto other types and kinds of leather.

Grain Buffalo:- Shows the full natural grain of the Buffalo with no attempt to hide the grainy character of the hide

Lizard:- Any of a great number of lizard and snake-skins.

Naked Leathers:- No patterns.

Naked Cowhide:- The highest grade of cowhide. No attempt has been made to conceal the fineness of the grain. Hides may contain fat wrinkles or other naturally-occurring attributes of the animal.

Ostrich:- Genuine Ostrich is, traditionally, mostly used in expensive accessories. While embossed Ostrich on cowhide looks good and is available as a less expensive alternative.

Water Buffalo:- Flat-horned Buffalo, primarily from Asia and Africa. A heavy-duty, prominent grain, distinguishes this leather when used for upholstery.
