Leather Finishes

Some of our products allow you to choose the finish you want on your leather. You can either have a normal smooth finished surface or you can have it split where the surface is removed leaving a rough suede like surface. This is needed when a belt needs to be supple enough to tie or drape. The pictures below show the same hide of leather but one with the normal surface and one with the split surface:
