Lamb leather

Lamb is the young of the sheep, up to a year old. The delicate meat of lamb is preferred to the flesh of adult animals.

Lamb leather is used for clothing. Its softness and lightness makes a smooth leather for leisure jackets, skirts, dresses or leather pants. Lambskin is also used for gloves, belts, purses, bags, hats or shoes. Particularly expensive leather clothing is often made of lambskin.

Sheep leather is also processed. But it is presumably often referred to as lamb leather, even if it comes from the older sheep. Sheep leather can be so sturdy that it is even used for furniture.

Definitely "sheep leather".



Plongeé means lamb napa from animals from Europe, America, Asia or Africa with a particularly large volume. Plonge leather is almost exclusively used for men's gloves. The tanning process comes from France, where such leather is still produced for the upper price segment.


Chevrette is a French term for a sheep leather which is produced to look like Chevreau. It is lumpy and not so valuable. It is used in footwear.
