Rough Out Leather

This leather is often found on more sports models, boots, derby on rubber sole ... chic shoes but with a very nice sporty look.

But to the fact ... what is Rough Out leather?

Roughout leather is a type of leather that is created by using the underside of the animal hide (usually the flesh side) as the outer surface of the material. Unlike smooth leather, which has the outer surface polished and treated to create a smooth, refined appearance, roughout leather retains the natural texture of the animal hide.

Here are some key characteristics and features of roughout leather:

  1. Texture: Roughout leather has a rough and textured surface, often with a suede-like feel. This texture is a result of using the flesh side of the hide, which has natural imperfections and fibers.

  2. Durability: Roughout leather is known for its durability and resistance to wear and tear. The flesh side is typically tougher and can handle rough conditions.

  3. Appearance: The appearance of roughout leather is more rugged and casual compared to smooth leather. It is commonly used in work boots, hiking boots, and other outdoor footwear, as well as in some casual leather goods.

  4. Water Resistance: Roughout leather can have good water-resistant properties due to its natural texture, which helps repel water to some extent. However, it is not as water-resistant as some treated smooth leather varieties.

  5. Aging and Patina: Like smooth leather, roughout leather can develop a unique patina over time with use and exposure to the elements. The texture and color of the leather can change, giving it a distinctive character.

  6. Maintenance: Maintaining roughout leather typically involves brushing off dirt and debris and occasionally applying a suede protector or conditioner to keep it clean and supple.

  7. Uses: In addition to footwear, roughout leather is sometimes used in the construction of bags, wallets, belts, and other leather accessories, as well as in certain types of clothing.

Overall, roughout leather is valued for its rugged appearance, durability, and ability to age gracefully, making it a popular choice for items that need to withstand tough conditions while maintaining a distinct style.
