What is red leather?
Red leather hide is a sturdy, yet supple fabric made from various animal hides and skins that have been infused with a red dye. Red leather material can be used in a variety of applications from clothing to furniture to vehicle seating and really adds a pop of color to manufacturing jobs.
How is red leather made?
Red leather hide can be made using cowhide, lambskin, crocodile skin, goat skin, lizard skin, pig skin or alligator skin. There are four basic phases to making red leather for manufacturing:
1. Prepping: This involves removing the skin or hide and preparing it for finishing. Then the hide or skin is placed in a heavy salt solution designed to stop the hide or skin from losing shape. Then placing the hide or skin in a lime bath provides much needed moisture, which then allows the hide or skin to be separated into two different layers. The upper layer is typically used for higher quality leathers like full grain leather and the bottom layer is used for products like shoes or purses.
2. Tanning: Tanning is what actually turns a hide or skin into a true leather. The hide or skin is exposed to a vegetable-based solution or chromium salt to help remove any excel moisture.
3. Re-Tanning: This is a ‘do-over’ of the tanning process.
4. Dyeing: Once properly tanned, the leather is now ready to have any color dye infused or injected. In this instance, that color is black.
What is the highest quality red leather?
The highest quality red leather material comes from that top layer produced in the prepping phase of making leather. Think leather jackets or furniture or vehicle seat covers.
