Definition of Nubuck Leather
Nubuck leather is leather with the grain’s surface lightly sanded to produce an even, smooth texture with a velvety, lustrous look and feel.
Like corrected grain, nubuck leather is made from the hide’s top grain, making it another durable leather option.
Grease, wax, or oils are sometimes applied to the leather, which is why it’s also called oil nubucks.
