Hole punching is a technique used extensively on leather. Automobile leathers are often perforated for ventilation, or for fashion reasons, with repeating patterns and small holes. For belts, holes are cut or punched into the leather so that the belt can be closed. Shoes are provided with holes for decorative reasons or because of the breathability properties. Sometimes holes are also pre-punched along the seam so that the thread or the cord can be pulled through the leather.
