All products by and from Kalab Leathercraft are made from natural carabao and cow hide. Our leathercraft goods are meticulously processed and stitched by hand. Due to the handmade nature of our products and the natural grains of carabao and cow hide, each item we produce may have a slight distinct texture and look.
Since we use real carabao and cow hide for our products, natural blemishes may appear on each finished item. These do not indicate that the products are damaged or flawed as these blemishes are expected when it comes to natural leather.
Please note that due to the uniqueness of cow and especially carabao leather, the finished product that you will receive may slightly differ from the pictures posted on our site and social media accounts.
By purchasing from and supporting Kalab Leathercraft, you are agreeing to this disclaimer.

Full grain leather is the pinnacle of all leather classes. It includes all of the natural grain, making it far more superior than other types of leather including genuine leather. We treat full grain leather with utmost respect and handle them all by hand. That is why every leather product is hand stitched and handmade.
Compared to other sources of material such as horsehide,
goat and sheepskin, leather enthusiasts prefer to use cow and carabao hides due
to their overall strength and durability.
Cow hide is known to have a smooth texture and flexible
structure, making it an ideal material to work with when it comes to
leathercraft. It provides better tear resistance compared to other types of
leather and can naturally repel moisture, enabling it to withstand wear and
tear from everyday use.
Likewise, carabao hide has a longer life span than other
materials due to its thickness and stiffness. In fact, in most countries,
carabao hide is mainly used for leather shoes due to its natural toughness and durability.
Aside from their sturdy nature, cow and carabao hides are
also known for their distinct and visible grains, which add to their classic
We strive to provide you the best quality of hand stitched and handmade leather products.
