This is the most durable type of leather, but not the most natural. That is because the natural markings have usually been removed through sanding or buffing. An artificial grain pattern is being embossed onto the hide, hence it’s name ‘Corrected Grain’. This results in a consistent grain and coloration. In addition, the surface is generally sprayed with a protective topcoat with colour in it. Adding this layer usually subtracts some of the natural softness and breathability of the leather. In a pigmented leather, the colour might not be as deep and rich as an Aniline leather and it might not feature the luxurious handle, however it is the most durable and cleanable leather type.
