Leather is generally produced through different manufacturing processes on various scales right from the cottage industries to the heavy industries.

There are various forms of leather commercially available and sold in the market:– Full-grain leather: Mostly used for making furniture and also footwear. They are typically available in aniline and semi aniline type, depending on the processing style. The grain remains allowing the fiber strength, durability and also has breathability, resulting in less moisture from prolonged contact which means that rather than wearing out, it will develop a patina over time.-Top-grain leather: It is typically less expensive and as long as the finish remains unbroken it will have a greater resistance to stains than full-grain leather. It is the second-highest quality leather with a finish coat added to the surface resulting in a colder, plastic feel finishing with less breathability. It will not develop a natural patina like full grain. – Corrected-grain leather: used to make pigmented leather as the solid pigment helps hide the corrections or imperfections. They can mainly be bought as two finish types: semi-aniline and pigmented.- Split leather: created from the fibrous part of the hide left once the top-grain of the rawhide has been separated from the hide; Has an artificial layer applied to the surface and is embossed with a leather grain.
