You can buy leather in many different types. The most commonly used leather is undoubtedly cow leather. With that, cow leather is very popular, but all know that the leather from the young cow, calfskin is perhaps even more sought after. Calf leather is sought after and therefore pricier because it has the properties to become a very beautiful, soft, smooth and durable leather. The grain structure of a calf is finer than that of a cow. On a daily basis, you hear people talking about those beautiful calf leather shoes or bag. The calf is not yet fully grown, which is why calf skins are smaller than cow skins. Not only smaller, but also more flexible. The size of the hide and the prices for calf leather mean that you find it more often in leather goods, shoes rather than furniture. Tanning calfskin is an art in itself. The German and French calfskin tanneries, such as Perlinger Leather, have built up a huge reputation. It is not for nothing that the big fashion brands have their own tanneries. That way, they maximally control the quality of the leather used for the famous leather goods.
