Secrid Leather Types

Leather is versatile natural product. It comes in many forms and is produced in a wide variety of ways and styles. We choose to produce our leather exclusively in Europe; Germany, Italy and mainly here in Holland. This way we can ensure our leather is of the highest quality and tanned under good working conditions with care and attention to the environment.

Secrid's leather is made from European cowhides with a full-grain and aniline dyed basis, which can be worked for a diversity of unique looks and feels. Secrid has a total of 16 leather types in their collection.

TREATMENTS & FINISHES


FULL GRAIN LEATHER

The top layer of the hide forms the highest quality leather. This favourite among luxury brands retains most of leather’s natural appeal. In contrast to corrected leather, the surface of full-grain leather has not been sanded to remove natural marks. Our full-grain leather variants are finished in one of two ways; aniline and semi-aniline.

SPLIT LEATHER

Our soft split leather takes its name from the production process, in which cowhides are split in two parts. The top layer forms full- or corrected-grain leather, while the bottom part forms the basis for split leather or suede. We use this leather to create highly altered leathers such as our Glamour line.

CORRECTED GRAIN LEATHER

Corrected-grain leather starts out as full-grain leather and is worked to create specific surface characteristics. By coating and sanding the leather we can create a variety of feels and looks. Our wallets made of corrected-grain leather are typically more resistant to water and stains.

FULL ANILINE LEATHER

The soluble dyes used in aniline colouring don’t coat the skin but penetrate its surface, colouring it all the way through. Full aniline means no other finish had been used to cover the surface of the leather, keeping the leather’s look close to its natural origin. In this manner the natural texture with all its character remains visible.

SEMI ANILINE LEATHER

Semi-aniline is a process similar to full-aniline, but adds a thin top coating to colour the leather further and/or protect it from wear and staining. Because we produce exclusively in the European Union, strict EU laws regulate the use of materials that could be damaging to health and the environment.

CARE FOR YOUR LEATHER

Leather is a natural material. Some irregularities may be visible on our products, meaning no two wallets are exactly the same. Over time our leather changes appearance by daily use and exposure to the elements. This is especially true for the Recycled line. The leather chosen for our wallets does not require any regular maintenance. If your wallet does get dirty or wet, there are several steps you may want to take to ensure the leather’s look and feel. Depending on the type of leather, there are two ways to go about this.

WATER REPELLENT LEATHERS

These leather types have been treated so that the surface can be cleaned with a damp cloth. The leather is unlikely to absorb water or other materials. Therefore, we advise you not to use any polish, as this will only be superficial and actually rub off upon contact with your garments.

WATER ABSORBING LEATHERS

Since these leathers are prone to absorbing water, we recommend not trying to clean them. Any water or moisture used in this process would be absorbed by the wallet and may change its colour further. If you do get caught in typically Dutch weather and your wallet gets wet, best use a soft cloth to carefully pat it dry.
