    The leather that is the material

    The leather is the material (that/which) we made the jackets with.

    1. The leather is the material with which we made the jackets.
    2. The material that we made the jackets with is leather.
    3. The leather is the material that we made the jackets with.

    Hello,
    I know that 1 and 2 are correct but what about 3? Is 3 correct as well?

    Thank you.

    You cannot name all of your posts as "relative clause". Give each a different name that is specific for the post.

    Re: The leather that is the material

    It's interesting that, in the other forum in which you asked this question, you said this sentence was made by you. It was in fact contained in a post submitted nine years before in that forum, a post which also contained the other relative clause you posted in this forum at the same time as this one.

    Are you spending your time trawling forums for old questions to post randomly?

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I apologize for writing "relative clause" to some of my threads. I shouldn't have done it. It's my fault and please excuse me.
    Well, I read the old threads according to Ascending Order in order to improve my grammar.
    Thank you.
