Leather for small leather goods
Whether you are a professional or hobbyist with leatherworking, you want to work with fine products. The best type of leather for small leather goods mainly depends on the wishes of the leather worker. Vegetable tanned leather is a bit firmer and ages nicely through use. That traditional look-and-feel is mostly used by designers who like to stitch by hand. Those who work with an industrial leather sewing machine often choose chrome-tanned leathers, because they are more flexible and easier to stitch. Chrome-tanned leather is often more resistant to discoloration and stains.
There is no right or wrong, it's just a matter of what you prefer and feel is more beautiful! For small leather goods, we advise to search for leather collections at Leatherbox that are also suitable for making bags.
