What is a Cow, Hide Crust?

So, what is a cowhide crust? If you’ve been wondering for some time, this article is for you. This leather comes in three different grades: Natural Crust Cow Hide and Full Grain DD Crease Leather. Each grade has a slightly different texture and can range in price from $40 to $50 per square foot. We’ll also discuss what is meant by “Crust” and how it’s different from “Full Grain”.


Veg-Cow is top-quality undyed vegetable-tanned cowhide. It is extremely durable and light and moisture-sensitive. The skin’s natural oils make it perfect for crafting and creating heritage looks. It is also available in different thicknesses, including full chrome, semi-chrome, wet white goat, and chrome-free ecological. Whether you’re looking for a rustic, vintage, or vintage-looking look, Veg-Cow is an excellent choice.

Veg-Cow Full Grain DD Crease Leather

Veg-Cow Full Grain ND Crease Leather has a rich patina and is durable, yet also lightweight. Its rich color, natural marks, and patina are signs of quality, though this leather is more expensive than chrome-tanned versions.

However, the term is often misunderstood because it can mean a variety of things – from the animal itself to the tanned chrome salts used in the tanning process.
