Limiteds or leather collections?
Exploring Diverse Leather Offerings
Leather is traditionally tanned in large quantities, typically starting from 100 square meters per color. Tanneries do not usually keep stock, which leads many people to rely on leftover leather from producers. These limited collections offer affordability and a wide variety of choices. However, they often come with uncertainties regarding origin, production conditions, and suitability for specific applications. Additionally, once the stock is depleted, reordering or finding the same color becomes challenging.
On the other hand, permanent leather collections offer the advantage of being consistently available for reorder. Designers can work with color charts and specialize in specific leather types. Furthermore, the origin, certifications, and other essential leather properties are clearly defined. Although permanent collections may have a relatively higher price point, they ensure makers consistency and eliminate the need for relying on leftover stock.
