Most people do not realize that there are several types of leather. Depending on the type you choose, whether in fabric for crafts or in already finished products, it can have an effect on price, quality, durability and how easy it is to clean. The most common types of leather are full grain, split, corrected grain, suede, bicast and faux.
As you go along, make a few other items at each skill level to gather Leatherworking XP.

The investment in improving your skill level will pay off in the long run.

Bicast leather, sometimes called coated leather, is similar to split grain leather. The difference lies in the application of polyurethane on the surface. This type is quite durable. Originally used only in the making of shoes, it is now found as upholstery in high-traffic businesses such as bars and restaurants. Since it is synthetic, the price tends to be lower than more natural forms of leather.
