Fancy leather

Leather made from different type of hides with a common trait of being commercially interesting and important primarily because of grain, or noticeable finish whether natural or the result of processing.
There are three major groups:
1) Natural grains, such as reptile and aquatic leather
2) Simulated natural grains
3) Decorative finished, such as geometrical patterns or metallic finishes.
Processing may be graining, printing, embossing, ornamenting and any other finishing operation enhancing the appeal of leather.
