Depending on skin type:
Flower skin: It is the thinnest part of the skin (outside of the dermis). It provides touch, flexibility and high mechanical strength.
Split leather: The inside of the skin. Usually split skin is rougher and tougher than leather. This type of skin is suitable for gloves with high resistance to cutting, drilling and thermal protection (depending on thickness). The feel to the skin is less flower.
Depending on the type of animal:
Beef: (skin flower and split)
Skin provides excellent breathability, dexterity and very good mechanical properties against abrasion and perforation, and a good touch.
Buffalo (flower and split leather)
The feature is very similar to cowhide. Buffalo skin is more resistant to cutting and drilling than beef and thus talk of a tougher skin but more durable while maintaining a good touch.
Cabra: (skin flower)
Exclusive use leather flower. Excellent mechanical performance and flexibility, offering an excellent touch.
Lamb (black flower)
Much like goatskin, it has less resistance to abrasion and provides excellent touch.
Pork: (fur flower)
It offers greater breathability than other skins. It has less resistance to abrasion, cut and tear. Reduces flexibility and tact and offers lower mechanical performance than other types of skin.
We call covering material or combination use or coating on a base material (cotton, polyester, nylon ...).
