Leather has historically been used as an important art medium.
From ancient times to the present, artisans have used a variety of tools and techniques to employ leather for a multitude of functional as well as artistic purposes. Its uses include garments, book-binding material,
and even coverings for furniture. While many people typically think of rawhide or animal byproducts when thinking about this material,
today leather comes in many other forms as well such as vegetable-tanned leather and synthetic leather.
