UNDERSTANDING LEATHER

Getting Started

Leather upholstery remains as one of the top furniture coverings in today’s buying market. Once regarded as an upholstery option for only the wealthy, it has become an affordable option for consumers of any price range. This is due mainly to increased efforts and technology in tanning, as well as styling that can shape leather into a wide variety of colors, textures, and feels that appeal to a larger customer base.

Leather is also a global commodity in which the United States, is by far one of the largest contributers. In todays market hides are priced and sold by the square foot, based on the overall quality of the hide and the tanning process. Currently shoes and handbags use about 65% of the leather produced worldwide, automotive is roughly 20%, and furniture accounts for 10% usage with the remaining 5% going towards miscellaneous goods.
