Pigskin | Truly Unique

While leather can come from a wide range of animals, the pig provides a truly unique leather. Pigskin is special because – unlike other animal skins – it breathes through many tiny pores, which allowed the animal to keep the body cool in summer and comfortable in cold weather. Pigskin is also tough and durable, and, with some assistance from Wolverine Leathers, can be soft and beautiful.
