Top grain leather scraps are made from a piece of leather that has been sanded and buffed to remove imperfections such as scars and blemishes on the surface while retaining some layers of grain underneath the top layer of finish. Top grain leather is usually made from lesser quality hides that would be considered scrap by other manufacturers but still have some good qualities worth saving for future use. This type of scrap can make great projects because it is easy to work with and easy to maintain over time compared to full or top grain scraps.
