Kid Leather

Kid Leather

 

a chrome-tanned leather made from goatskin. The best types of kid leather are obtained from the skins of young goats from stock bred for milk or for both milk and meat. Kid leather has attractive grain and exhibits considerable tensile strength (as much as 50 meganewtons per sq m). Kid leather is considered the highest quality material for the manufacture of shoe uppers: it is durable yet thin, soft, pliable, and attractive.
