No matter the many good choices and stunning styles for different cookware out there, you still can choose which one is the best by considering some factors.
Just because it says USA made does not mean that it was made in the USA. Many of us are unaware that many products, not just leather goods, are made what is called “off-shore” and then finished on-shore so that a USA made label can legally be placed on the finished product. This procedure makes it nearly impossible to know where your product is from or how many hands it pasted through before you purchase it. I for one don’t like this process but they call it “progress”. You also have this in the auto industry and others. Sometimes the leather is tanned and processed in a foreign country and shipped to the U. S. where the zipper, snaps, and linings are later affixed to the garment and a Made in the USA Label then sown onto the piece and is absolutely legal according to the Federal Trade Commission.
12. Fan strategically. If the day’s heat is trapped inside your home, try a little ventilation at night or when the temperature drops below 77. A window fan can help; the trick is to face the blades outside to suck warm air out of the house and pull cooler air in. Kind of a head scratcher, but it works.
Spritz yourself. Keep a spray bottle in the refrigerator, and when the going gets hot, give yourself a good squirt. Begin with your wrists to quickly cool down the blood flowing through their veins. Even better, if you have kids, hand them the squirt bottle and let them have the fun, while you dit back and relax.
LIMING: One of the beamhouse operations employed in leather manufacture. Its purpose is to degrade, and thereby loosen, the epidermal structure of hide or skin, including the hair, epidermis, sweat glands, etc., so that they may be removed. Methods of liming vary both in the chemicals used and in procedures. Unhairing and liming can be carried out simultaneously by immersing the skins in the lime and water mixture, often with the addition of other chemicals known as sharpeners, e.g., sodium sulphate.
Calfskin leather is commonly found in darker shades, can be embossed, has a high shine index and color depth and is scuff resistant so is the obvious choice for high quality dress shoes.
Most times you get what you pay for but all too many times you pay twice or even more then that for the product you buy. Sometimes it all depends on who you buy from as to how much you pay for good leather and how many hands it went through. Of course as with any product, the fewer hands, the less you will pay. Therefore it is possible to buy good leather at a reasonable price. No one wants to pay an arm and a leg when buying there leather product so a little knowledge about the product can go a long way.
