Leather pants - Leather trousers
Leather trousers are made entirely or for the most part of leather. Generally, leather trousers are chrome tanned. Leather from a variety of animal species can be used for making leather trousers. Typical is cow leather, goatskin, lamb leather or pig leather. But also deerskin, [calfskin]] or kangaroo leather can be used. The leather must be robust enough for this purpose. Leather pants are available as smooth leather, nubuck or suede.
Almost every jeans has a patch of leather. There is probably more leather used as patches on jeans than for complete leather trousers.
But not all patches are made of genuine leather. Even with branded jeans, there are the same models with and without patches of leather. This can be checked in the declaration.
No genuine leather. No leather fibre structure and correctly declared.
Traditional leather pants
Historically, leather trousers were the rugged clothes of the peasants and craftsmen. Due to the longevity of these pants, some objects reach a life age of over 30 years. Some of these trousers are not cleaned for decades.
