Q & A
1. How to calculate leather usage rate?
Since nubuck is natural leather without any pigment, it is hard to achieve 100% usage rate. It also depends on different products and position of the leather. General speaking, average usage rate of 85% can be defined as high quality. If usage rate less than 60%, it is typically defined as bad quality.
2. Regarding to Nubuck Selection
As it is natural skin without any pigment, it is hard to avoid defects such as white dots, scars, brands, neck wrinkle. Generally, our usage rate on Selection A is 85-92%, Selection B is 78-85%, Selection C is 65-78%, Selection D is 55-65%. Different ratio of Selection, price varies a lot.
3. Can all Nubuck achieve water-proof function?
It depends. Since in order to achieve water proof function, it should be done during process of dying. Normally we will do slight pigment on the final dyed color. But if with pigment, the waterproof function on the surface will be affected. As it is hard to control color variation, especially on bright colors, most tannery technicians can do 2-3 colors for water proof which is most familiar for him to handle.
