What type of leather is best for leather binding?

We will differentiate according to the type of binding:

If our objective is to cover a book or a structure, we need a thin leather that adapts well to the shape, so we recommend goatskin .

If we want to gild or emboss a book , the leather must have a high percentage of vegetable tanning . To gild (mark with a stamp and color on the leather) the leather has to admit humidity, for this reason the satin or gloss finishes are not valid options. Following this premise, to emboss (make a groove inward in the skin with pressure) it is necessary for the skin to mark well when pressed with moisture.

Leather for notebooks or midori

Generally, a full-bodied and thick leather is used, so that the notebook can be assembled on its own. If what you are looking for is leather as it is, we recommend cowhide , oiled cowhide or nubuck cowhide.

In leather for craftsmen we like to go further and for this reason we urge you to give structure to the notebook to limit ourselves in design and take advantage of the extensive online leather catalog that we have.
