Leather has been used for centuries to make different kinds of goods as it was very durable and easily available from the hides of animals. In olden days it was used for shoes, hats and other sorts of covering that could save people from the inclement weather. Pouches, quivers for arrows, and many other utility items were made from leather by people living in far off places where the availability of cotton cloth was very rare. Nowadays leather goods such as hats, shoes, belts, trousers, jackets, skirts and many more items for daily use are made by both cottage industries and heavy industries.
The leather is also used for bookbinding, making covers for furniture and well as wallpapers. It’s obtained by a process known as tanning where the rawhide and skin of an animal get treated to remove all unwanted stuff from its surface. There several tanning methods are used to obtain good leather from rawhide to make it suitable to be used for different purposes. Each tanning process uses particular types of chemicals to give the leather an exceptional quality. Leather can be classified mainly into four types besides many other subtypes. Each type of leather has a particular use and costs according to the category it falls in.
