Leather is a very good material for making things. It lets air through well and it is very flexible. Because it allows air to pass through, it does not stink quickly. In addition, the material is also beautiful. That is why it is used very often, such as furniture. Often these are also slightly more expensive. Leather is more expensive than other fabrics because of the process to get it as it ends up on your couch. It comes from the skin of animals. There are many different types of leather. This is because the skins of different animals are used to make it. In addition, it grows by itself. This gives you different qualities in the leather. Before the leather can be used, it is tanned first. Due to tanning, the proteins in the skin can no longer dissolve. This makes the leather unlimited shelf life. It is therefore a fairly strong material that will last a long time. It bends well with the curves that it must take. And this can repeat it very often without wearing it out. Because the fabric lasts quite long, it is not only used in furniture, but also for certain shoes. What is important is to lubricate it so that the leather stays smooth. Especially if you have athletic shoes that are made of leather, you should definitely do this. This way you can ensure that your shoes last longer than a season.
But nowadays there are even more possibilities for leather. This way you can not only lubricate it with grease to make it last longer, but you can also simply paint your leather products with leather paint. This way you can easily give your shoes or sofa a new color in the color that you like. If you have items of suede, you do need another kind of paint. In that case you have to look for special suede paint.
