Rate this:
Leather has been covering human bodies since hefty pelts first protected prehistoric cave-dwellers. Since then, we have chiseled leather into an infinite number of different forms, and today, top designers create stunning leather pieces crafted as finely as precious jewels. A living material that is sculpted by the body's own habits, leather has run the gamut of fashion styles in the 20th century, and is able to represent innumerable attitudes, from the tough virility of the Hells Angels to the sleek elegance of a smooth thigh boot.
