The spelt arrived in a very timely fashion. It smells wonderful so you know it's true leather. It is supple and smooth. It can be used for dress or casual. Very nice belt sized perfectly.
Aniline leather is a type of leather dyed exclusively with soluble dyes without covering the surface with a topcoat paint or insoluble pigments. The resulting leather retains the hide's natural surface with the 'grain', i.e. visible pores, scars etc. of the complete original animal's skin structure. For this reason, aniline leather is one of the most precious finishing in leather manufacturing. Only premium quality leathers are suitable for aniline finish.
