Calfskin refers to two to three-year-old calves with smaller pores, stronger pulling force and higher price. Because of the small or clear pores, calfskin is a high-grade variety.
The so-called calf hide is slaughtered when the cattle are young. The size of each cow hide is no more than 15 square feet (equivalent to the size of the car hood, 144 square inches per square foot, and 30.48 cm per foot). The leather is soft and smooth, and its output is scarce, Therefore, it is mostly used to make small leather goods (leather bags, leather clips, leather shoes, etc.), and the pores on the surface of genuine calfskin can be seen clearly through a magnifying glass. It is soft and smooth like a quilt when you hold it.
