Why Leather Manufacturers care when sourcing their goods

Leather craftspeople and artisans are on a mission to seek and source the finest hides from around the globe, to ensure that the quality of their leather goods is nothing far from perfection.

Once the finest hides are found, then it’s the leather manufacturer’s job to dye the leather followed by finishing the leather to the customers’ exact specifications. Leather manufacturers have complete control over the entire leather-making process, and experienced craftspeople are on hand to inspect and certify excellence at every stage.

Leather Manufacturers are aware that Genuine Leather isn’t Real Leather

For some, this revelation may come as a shock, but others in the industry will know “Genuine leather” is actually the shaved-off underside of a full piece of leather. It is cleverly marketed, so genuine leather products are still attractive, however, they are prone to wear and tear, and is the least attractive part of the hide. This is why leather manufacturers care when sourcing their goods, because they will be looking for “Real Leather” which is full-grain or top grain varieties – only difference between these two is that top grain is slightly sanded for aesthetic reasons and the full-fibered character is high-end luxury as it continues it accumulate character throughout its life.

Producing High Quality Leather Goods Begins with Acquiring the Best Raw Materials

CreateLab prides themselves on accepting only the finest hides and skins from partner tanneries to ensure we are providing our customers with the best yield and value available.

Most of our leathers begin with the careful selection and control of crust which we procure from around the globe. We seek the best hides which we consider to be a crucial point in producing the highest quality leather.

Leather goods made to last

For the tannery an extensive curing process is recommended that goes from soaking the leather to remove impurities through to dying and conditioning the leather to guarantee the best colour and durability possible. This ensures that the finished leather goods are of finest quality and will look great for years to come.

Quality Control Standards for Leather Manufacturers

A great leather manufacturer will ensure every order undergoes comprehensive quality check and tested to verify that it meets or exceeds the leather industry performance standards. As a leather manufacturer, controlling all production processes and retaining the exact formulas and retainer cuttings of every order is key so that they can control dye lot variation and produce previous dye lots to match your every batch for years to come.
