Leather

Tough, comfy, and some people are very fond of it.


Leather is a tough, durable, flexible material. There's a good reason for that, which is that it is made from the tough outer skin of beasts. Evolution has seen to it that the stuff is tough and hardwearing and affords some resistance to the claws of other beasts as they fight it out for survival in the wild. Humans found the beasts were tasty, especially if cooked using the newly discovered FIRE. They then put the skin to good use, making leather, which even now in the modern world, is a strong, tough, flexible, and long-lasting material. It can be used to make comfy settees and chairs, posh handbags, boots, belts (which may or may not have studs in), and a variety of interesting outfits. Some people are especially fond of leather.

As leather is made from animals, it is only right that the animals are hunted and caught fair or at least farmed in reasonable conditions. If there was "Free Range Leather", we'd be giving it a mention like Free Range Eggs! If you don't eat meat, you may also choose to avoid leather. However, for those of us of the carnivorous tribes, there is a philosophical point: When you've eaten an animal it's a shame to waste the skin. There's no need to keep it a secret. "Wear Your Hide With Pride".
