What Is Soft Leather

Soft leather refers to a category of leathers that are known for their soft, supple texture and pliability. These leathers are often prized for their luxurious feel and are commonly used in high-quality garments, accessories, and upholstery. Soft leather can be made from various animal hides, such as cowhide, sheepskin, or lambskin, and undergo specific tanning and finishing processes to enhance its softness.

Popular Types of Soft Leather

1. Napa Leather

Napa leather is known for its buttery soft texture and is often used in luxury items such as high-end handbags and wallets. This leather type is made from full-grain or top-grain sheep, lamb, or cowhide, providing excellent durability and resistance to wear. Check out our blog post on Napa leather for more information.

2. Suede Leather

Suede leather is created by splitting and buffing the inner layer of the hide, resulting in a soft and velvety surface. Suede is ideal for making shoes, jackets, and bags, although it can be more delicate and susceptible to stains compared to other types of leather. Learn more about suede leather in our suede leather blog post.

3. Aniline Leather

Aniline leather is a high-quality full-grain leather that has been dyed using soluble aniline dyes. This process retains the leather's natural surface, giving it a soft and luxurious feel. Aniline leather is often used in furniture upholstery, but it can also be found in high-end bags and jackets. Discover more about aniline leather in our aniline leather blog post.
