Generally, to determine the quality of the hide we take into account the location of the hide, that is to say, from which part of the animal's body it comes from.

Cowhide is usually taken out in one piece which is usually divided into 5 sections.

Cowhide has two segments, one in the lower part, at the level of the stomach, and the other in the lower part, which includes the abdomen as well as the front legs.

This area usually provides lower quality leather and can have many defects and irregularities.


Generally, the highest quality part of the cowhide is usually the back, this area has the least amount of defects and is also stronger and more resistant. Undoubtedly, the best leather can be found in the front loin, that part behind the head of the animal, which in addition to the properties mentioned above has a better texture than the other parts.
