Leather is a durable, flexible material made by the treating or tanning of skins or hides of animals. Most leather comes from cattle, but it can be produced from the skins of many different animals, such as crocodile, lizard, buffalo, elephant, buck, springbok or ostrich. Thinner skins can also be used, such as snake and eel, but are usually layered on top of normal cowhide to ensure durability.
Here at Lehza Vintage we have vintage bags, wallets, belts and other goods made of most types of skins. Check out our gallery below for help with identifying different types of skins and leathers…
