At Allure Leather we insist on using the top quality leather for our garments. We have been asked several times why we do not use lamb skin. The answer is very simple. Lamb is wonderful to the touch however it is NOT durable to use on most of the leather lingerie items we manufacture especially corsets. One wear and your items will be out of shape. Yes it is cheaper to use lambskin however at Allure Leather we will not compromise our quality.
Here is just a small comparison between Cowhide and lambskin:
excellent tough Leather, long a consumer market favorite. Top Grain or Genuine Cowhide has been around for decades and many products are made from it. Because of its toughness and strength it has been used in the past for American pilots, the U.S. Defense Department today ONLY use flight jackets made of Cowhide. Genuine Cowhide with modern technology is now being processed into a very supple feel to the touch, at times even rival lambskin in its suppleness. Some Manufacturers use Split Cowhide or Buff Cowhide, or the weaker layers of a hide to make products. Recognized brand name products such as Allure Leather only use top Cowhide. Always buy Top Grain or Genuine Leather Products. Unfortunately, some Split Leather products are sometimes labeled as being ‘Genuine Leather’.
Wonderful soft leather. However, it can be easily damaged if not cared for properly. It is weak in nature, it stretches if it is not used properly. Excellent quality Lambskin can demand a high price tag. Two of the best current market examples are USA Lambskin and New Zealand Lambskin. Two of the worst quality lambskins are India lambskin and Pakistan lambskin. Because lambskin supple nature, it is considered ‘Luxury Leather’. Women Consumers seem to love the feel of the Lambskin more than Men. It is recommended that lambskin items to be lined with fabric in order to maintain the shape of the garment, otherwise garments usually bent out of shape or rips easily.
