There are many different types of leather hides we sell to our customers and we need to be educate them on what they are buying before they purchase. This infographic will be part of a "Buying Guide" on our e-commerce website. We need a flow chart or a step-by=step that takes them through their options.
Leather comes in different: Hide Shapes/Animal, Thicknesses, Tannages, and Dying Processes. Within each of these categories they have different options. The options are described below…
Firstly, leather can be made from the hides of different animals. For the most part, leather is created using the skins of cow, lamb, pig, python, and alligator. Each of these animal's hides are different sizes and shapes. Additionally, cow hides come in three different shapes; full hides, half hides, and shoulders. So we want to show a diagram showing the typical dimensions and shape of each type of hide. I have attached these diagrams below for your use.
Leather is created in different thicknesses which is measured in milometers. Certain thicknesses are best for creating different end-products (Wallets, Bags, Belt, Apparel). We would like to work this correlation into the graphic. (Info provided below)
Leather is also tanned using chrome tanning, vegetable tanning, or oil tanning. We would want descriptions of each of these processes (provided below). Please note, these tanning techniques are used on all different animal types.
Each leather is dyed using full-aniline, semi-aniline, or pigmented dyes. We would want descriptions (provided below). Please note, these dying techniques are used on all different animals.
