Leathers for Apparel and Accessories

Grain Pigskin

Pigskin is a resilient leather with a wide range of attributes, including its relatively light weight, a natural degree of insulation, and reasonable resistance to abrasion. These factors make pigskin a good choice for crafting versatile, light weight welding apparel. As pigskin hides tend to be on the thin side, we typically use full grain leather to ensure proper performance.

Standard Cowhide

Revco’s standard split cowhides offer the right balance between performance and value. They are the preferred choice of leather for our core line of leather welding garments. These leather selections are reliably strong and durable; they perform very well against sparks, light spatter, and abrasion; and they still retain a good degree of pliability that is important for all garments.
