Definition of Natural Grain

Leather with a natural grain is one that has retained its original grain. It doesn’t have a uniform grain pattern since animal skins have varying grain structures.

However, natural grain leather is more expensive due to its high quality. It’s only derived from skins without severe damages like manure burns and surgical scars.

Example of Natural Grain Leather in a Sentence

"The leather’s natural grains are visible because the belt isn’t pigmented with a thick top coat."
