What is Full or Top Grain Leather & What is Crazy Horse Leather?Full Grain Leather is the outer layer of leather exposed to the elements during an animals lifetime, typically from cattle, hence the name cowhide. It is the most durable and highest quality leather available.
Crazy Horse Leather is the toughest of all full grain leathers and is treated with a specialized wax to increase it's durability and resistance to the elements - the process also give Crazy Horse leather that unique vintage appearance.
Top Grain Leather is also the outer layer of leather. However, it may be sanded or buffed out to reduce blemishes and even out the appearance of the surface. It is not as processed as some other forms of leather retaining much of the look many people seek in authentic leather products. Top-grain leather is soft and shows natural character.
What is Genuine Leather?These days many companies loosely use the term "Genuine Leather" to market inferior leather products as high end leather goods. In most cases genuine leather is the secondary layer of leather split from the top layer (called full grain or top grain). This underlying layer of leather is usually treated and finished to look like full grain leather, but it is no where near as durable as the top layer - full grain leather. Leather goods made from so called genuine leather will not last long.
If the price of a leather product sounds to good to be true, it is likely made from genuine leather, PU Leather (Faux/PVC) or bonded leather (Junk).
