KNOW YOUR LEATHER
Softy - Napa Leather
A soft smooth unfinished full grain premium leather which feels soft and warm to the touch. Often used for high end products just like ours. It isn’t sanded or buffed to remove any imperfections and
the top grain of the leather is used so you may find slight characteristics which is the joy of real leather after all! It is lightweight 0.9-1.2mm and has a medium resistance to water, wear, and weather. It doesn't need to be protected before use and will enjoy conditioning from time to time.
Our Pebble leather is one of our thicker leathers 1.8-2mm. It
has a soft and supple feel with a printed pebble grain surface to create a more uniformed leather than our unfinished leathers and has a light pigment finished.
Pebble and PDM look similar but there are some subtle differences. The thickness of pebble is almost double that of PDM . As the leather is thicker the chemical consumption to produce this high-quality hide is also higher and the processing
time is doubled too. The best selections of hides are chosen and often pebble is created using Ox hide (as cow hide is thinner and used to create PDM) All of this contributes to the final result which is a premium grade leather of the finest quality created specifically for KeriKit.
Pebble has a moderate resistance to water, wear, and weather. It doesn't require much...
Signature - Texas
Our Signature collection Texas leather is a semi veg tan which has been infused with vegetable tanning oils. This is a naked leather and the beauty of this hide is that you will see the leather in its most natural form so expect variance in leather grain, small scratches, freckles and mosquito bites as these all play a role in how the leather looks and feels. We do not reject this leather for these natural characteristics. No pigmentation is used on this leather or any artificial finish. This is a great option for anyone environmentally conscious as less chemicals are used, including less chrome and water during the tanning process which is better for the surrounding environment. Texas leather requires periodic care and will love our leather conditioner and cleaner. It is medium weight 1.4-1.6mm and has a very light resistance...
Signature - Conda
DDDM = Drum Dyed Dry Milled was Keri's favourite leather until we developed Texas. It is as soft as butter with a naked finish and feels amazing to touch.

With the embossed anaconda plate this leather takes on amore uniformed feel and having been specifically created for our signature collection, we LOVE it.
This is a good option for anyone environmentally conscious as less chemicals are used, including less chrome and water during the tanning process which is better for the surrounding environment.

Nubuck is a top grain polished leather. Softer and smoother than suede, which is the back side of the leather. Nubuck is meant to pick up natural oils over time from hands and the environment. This adds to the character and patina and helps build up its own resistance to stains.
Protective sprays are available to protect your nubuck but please apply this to a small area if the nubuck is coloured as it may darken the shade slightly. This is a supple lightweight leather 1.1-1.4mm and has a light resistance to water, wear, and weather unless protected.
