Leather types

You have the choice of either a Cowhide or Skiver leather for your desk...

Cowhide leathers

Cowhide leather is suited to larger and more expensive tables or desks. It is very slightly thicker than Skiver leather and less coarse to touch.

Cowhide leather is also of a higher quality and it is less likely you will find thickness variations, or small flaws in the leather, that you may find on Skiver leather. This is reflected in the price of Cowhide leather, as it is more expensive than Skiver leather.

 

Skiver leathers

Skiver leather is suited to smaller and less expensive tables or desks and is the more common choice of leather.

Skiver leather is typically 1mm thick and is slightly coarser to touch than Cowhide leather.

Skiver leather is also of a slightly lower quality than Cowhide leather and you may find thickness variations, or small flaws caused by scars that were on the animal the leather was made from. Such flaws are not seen as a defect but are accepted as adding character to the leather. This is all reflected in the price of Skiver leather, as it is cheaper than Cowhide leather.
