Also known as sueded or brushed leather, nubuck is produced by aniline-dyeing the hides in the drum, lightly brushing the surface to produce their iconic nappy effect, and then tumbling to bring out the natural texture of the hides. Prized for its soft, inviting feel, Nubuck is the ultimate in comfy, cozy leather. Rugged enough to be used for boots and shoes, it has remarkable versatility.
