Top grain may sound like it is the top quality leather, which may be true to some extent but the real meaning is actually different. It is the refined version of full grain leather but unlike this one, the top grain is sanded and buffed to remove imperfections and bring uniformity to the final product. This type of leather simply has a natural grain and made out of the top layer of the animal hide. Any leather can be considered top-grain unless and unless it is sanded or processed in order to make changes to make it look soft and smooth.
Is Top Grain Leather Good?
Top grain leather is extremely popular in the fashion industry, especially for the making of jacket and bags. This is the second-highest grade of leather because of the sanding process. The process helps make the top grain leather feel softer. Fashion brands use this leather for their jackets as it is easy to handle, durable and is much more comfortable than other leather types.
What Is The Difference Between Genuine Leather And Top Grain Leather?
The common belief is that genuine leather is premium quality leather and the high rates of this one are justified. However, it is not true. Genuine leather can come from any split leather from goat, cow or pig hide. When sanded, embossed, and reformated it can be called genuine leather. People actually pay a fortune to buy genuine leather due to the lack of research on types of leather. If you’re in search for a genuinely Real leather, go for top grain.
How Long Does Top Grain Leather Last?
Any lather that is real is far more durable than fabric and if taken proper care of, top grain leather jacket can last up to 10-15 years. It may be a bit pricey but the quality and vintage look that it will provide you will justify the comparatively high rates.
