The ghost finish is a white wax finish that will wear and patina over time exposing more and more of the beautiful color beneath. You can buff with a cloth to remove some of the finish to get just the right look you want to start with. There may be some marks in the white coatings, they will remover overtime with use.
This veg tan leather is their top grade, it is full grain and has a nice balance between supple and firm. It is easy to cut and skive. The veg tan's firmness will give some rigidity to your products and even allows for great molding applications. It is some of the most versatile leather we have found. Their beautiful colors will provide near endless color options and combinations to mix into your projects.
This leather is quite sensitive to marking/scratching so you may receive a piece that already has some of the white wax marked up. We always try to handle with such care but because it is so sensitive, markings can happen in our fulfillment and shipping process. You should be able to soften those markings with some buffing.
