Earlier, bags were just used as a storage commodity and hence, people were not selective about them. However, over the time, bags have become a necessary fashion accessory, which is not just a storage companion but adds style quotient to a person’s personality. So, folks are selective and seek to choose best bags. When picking up best bags, the quality of leather plays a vital role apart from other factors such as space, pattern, etc. As far as leather is concerned, there are plenty of leathers available in the market. These vary in price and quality. Hence, it is critical to understand the importance of every leather type so as to pick the best one. To help you make wiser decisions about quality of leather, this piece explains the importance of different types of leathers; Full Grain Leather, Top Grain Leather and Genuine Leather.

The full grain leather generally comes from better quality hide or skin. In order to retain the quality of the leather, no sanding process is applied. By sanding process, we mean adopting sanding techniques to sand away natural grains from the top of the surface of the leather. Hence, many a times, sanding washes out the natural look of the leather. In case of full grain leather, natural look is retained and it is considered as the best leather demonstrating the grain features of the animal from which it was taken. Hence, it ‘tops’ the quality list of the best quality of leather. As far as our bags are concerned, they are made using fine ‘full grain leather’ so as to provide utmost quality bags to our valued customers. We’re, you’ll definitely come back for another shopping with us considering the best quality leather that we use to manufacture our bags.

Besides this, the second type of leather, Genuine leather is another kind of leather. Unlike full grain leather, sanding processes are applied to its surface. It washes away the natural look of the leather making it inferior than full grain leather. Although ‘Genuine’ is confused to be superior, but realistically, it is a little bit inferior than Full Grain Leather. Hence, the word ‘Pure’ often confuses buyers.

The third grade leather is Top Grain Leather, which is produced with the hide left after the top is used. Often, the surface of the Top Grain Leather is painted in order to make it look superior. This type of leather is cheaper but doesn't stay for long duration.

These three types of leather demonstrate their own quality aspects. However, when best leather is talked about, full grain leather tops the list. The bags manufactured using full grain leather are here to stay for long!

By now, you might have known the different aspects of these leather types. Our bags are manufactured using full grain leather and we ensure the best quality leather that keeps your bag intact for many years. You don’t even require much maintenance.

Saffiano leather was originally made from the highest quality calf leather. Saffiano leather is famous for its slant lines and cross-hatch design which is motor-pressed into the wax coating of the hide giving it a slight luster. Leather that gains its grain pattern through this kind of stamping system is also called textured leather. Saffiano leather is also sometimes durable, scratch-resistant, and can resist water and stains.
