Definition of Matte Finish
Matte finish is a dull or flat finish, having minimal to no shine.
Leather is generally dull, and it’s the reflection of this rough surface that inspires the matte finish.
To create matte leather, a dulling agent is added to the leather’s top coat and/or the leather’s color.
But because of its rough surface, matte leather tends to stain and wear faster than shiny or glazed leather.
Example of Matte Finish in a Sentence
"I chose a leather watch band with a matte finish so it wouldn’t be so shiny."
