Definition of Hair-On Hide Leather

Hair-on hide leather is leather tanned with the original hair left intact, giving the final leather product an entirely different look and feel.

The only downside to hair on hide leather is that while the leather itself provides the flexibility, durability, and strength of regular leather, the hair doesn’t. 

So as it ages, the hair begins to wear off, reducing the leather product’s durability and altering its appearance.
