Nubuck is a type of top grain leather with a soft, velvety feel. It is made by buffing or sanding the surface of aniline leather. Buffing removes the grain, or skins surface, of the leather, this creates a nap of short protein fibres, which gives the leather a velvet like texture and a uniform appearance. Like aniline leather, nubuck gets its colour from aniline dyes, not coloured pigment, and does not have a protective topcoat. Nubuck leather has an extremely luxurious feel, it is soft and buttery to the touch. It is strong and durable, however it stains easily and is the most difficult leather to maintain. Nubuck is not recommended for high use situations. How do I care for nubuck?
