HOW IS LEATHER GENERALLY CUT?
Leather is composed by these following parts:
Rump 45 – 55%
Shoulders 20 – 25%
Flanks 20 – 205%
Rump is the most rare side of leather: it generally presents less lesions and his fibers have an unrelieved and tick structure; his thickness is regular. Shoulders have a thicker structure than fibers, a good thickness but wrinkles could be present. Flanks are thinner than rump, because they are the part of the body into which leather is more subject to movements of animal. Especially the so called belly is very soft.
