What is full grain leather?

Full grain leather is the highest quality grade of leather available on the market. It is obtained from the top layer of the animal's hide, where the natural grain pattern and imperfections remain intact. 

Characteristics of full grain leather

- Durability and strength: full grain leather is known for its exceptional durability, making it the ideal choice for long-lasting travel bags. The natural grain patterns and tight fiber structure give it immense strength, allowing it to withstand the rigors of frequent use, travel and the passage of time.

- Breathability: it allows air to circulate, preventing moisture buildup and keeping the contents of your bag fresh and well-ventilated

Softness and suppleness: despite its durability, full grain leather retains a luxurious feel. Over time, it molds to your touch and acquires a softness that only improves with age, providing a tactile experience that enhances the pleasure of owning an MPM bag.
