What Is the Difference Between Full Grain Leather,Top Grain Leather & Crazy horse leather

When we talk about leather bags, people may know about that bags are made of full grain leather, top grain leather or crazy horse leather.

Italian Full Grain Leather

Full-grain leather contains the entire grain layer, without any removal of the surface. Rather than wearing-out, it develops patina during its useful lifetime which it is considered the highest quality leather.  

Full-grain leather is stronger and more durable compared with others. The bag will get more praising and applauding after ten years of use from this type of leather.

Highest quality products like furniture, footwear and luggage all use full grain leather.

You may pay a little higher price for a bag made with full-grain leather, but it will survive the decades.

top grain leather

Top-grain leather means leather that has been made from the top or outermost layer of cowhide leather.

Depending on thickness, it may contain some of the fibrous under layer.

Top-grain leather can be good leather,however its strength and durability are not even close to the strength of full-grain leather.

crazy horse leather

Crazy horse leather is made by applying a special kind of wax to a full grain leather surface that has been buffed and smoothed out. The type of wax used rests independently upon the leather fibers allowing the coloration of the leather surface to change if rubbed without the colors immediately reversing back. The process of rubbing and altering the color shades is the reason causes the vintage appearance.
