Dear readers,

Our profession involves selling leather cleaners, repair products and care products for leather in Germany ( Every day we are constantly confronted with the properties and characteristics of leather. As a result of working with this wonderful material, we became passionate about collecting information, photos and videos about leather and sharing my knowledge by writing this dictionary. This is a real labour of love to which we have devoted many evenings and weekends.

We are often asked if we could summarize it into a printed book. But a book is already out of date as soon as it’s printed. Nowadays everyone has a smartphone, tablet or computer where they can study this dictionary. New information is added regularly and therefore it is always up to date.

We hope that we can inspire you with our enthusiasm for leather. Leather is a wonderful, natural material with incredibly different properties and areas of use. It can be designed in an infinite number of variations like no other alternative product.

As English is not our native language, there are certainly errors in the translations. Although Google translation is a great help. Please advise us of any errors. We will be happy to correct them. The leather dictionary in German:

We hope you enjoy reading this online leather encyclopedia!
