    leather vs skin

    Do you know the difference between "leather" and "skin" for animals?
    I had to figure out the difference in a material, but I lost the part. I'm not sure what was the issue in there,
    as far as I remember, "leather" was used for natural skin of some animal, and I said it's wrong as "leather" is only a synthetic one, which I regret.

    Re: leather vs skin

    Leather is the "tanned" hide of an animal, usually a bovid.
