Lambskin is lightweight, has some stretch and has minimal texture. Lambskin over time does stretch a little but still holds up well. It allows for strong colouring and as the sheep has wool instead of hair it doesn't have follicles, making it smoother and more like skin. It is very soft and supple and has excellent drape which makes it perform like fabric. The first few pages of our swatch are lambskin leathers. Most lambskin leathers are matt in finish and is better for lighter use and not for carrying heavy items, more for fashion purposes than a 'work horse' bag. Metallic leather have a foil type finish and make flake and rub away with use.
Goat has more texture and is thicker than lambksin and is in between Lambskin and Cow in terms of durability. For it's weight it is very study leather. It has more of a look of traditional leather but is slightly more coarse than lambksin with little or no stretch. Goat holds the colour well and our range profiles some unique colours. Some of the goat leathers are untreated and therefore do not have the final clear coat of protection, these leathers age well and develop their own patina/aging distressed type look. Goat is not heavy but long lasting.
Cow is thicker, more heavy duty and durable. It is heavier than lambskin and goat and also has the texture caused by hair follicles and has no stretch. All our cow leathers are still soft enough to roll but strong and we do not use raw hide or untanned leathers. This is perfect for 'work horse bags' and work bags but equally great for long lasting handbags. Most of our leathers have a matt finish unless specified.
