Also called a waxy hide, this full grain leather is made with vegetable tanned yearling hides followed by an aniline treatment. It is then hand-finished with many layers of waxes and oils to give it a deep, rich aspect and the natural tones have a slightly smoky aspect, giving this leather its name.
Pig suede has a silky touch and is instantly recognisable thanks to the little dots caused by the pig’s follicles. Pig skin is naturally thin and supple but this is enhanced further by several mechanical processes to massage and soften up the leather, once the skins have been chrome tanned and dyed through.Suede is in fact the flesh side of the skin, which has been finely trimmed and brushed. It is a beautiful leather for lining fine leather accessories and bags.
