Pebble grain leather is also called pebbled leather or scotch grain leather. Tales attribute the creation of pebbled leather to the Scottish. One legend tells the story of a busy leather maker who piled his hides on the pebble floor of his workshop. He left the hides there for weeks, working his way from the top of the pile down. By the time he got to the bottom of his pile of hides, the pebbled floor had imprinted on the bottom hide, leaving a bumpy pattern. Because he was a frugal leather maker, he decided to use the leather to make shoes, and his customer’s loved the new pattern.
Another tale about the origin of pebble grain leather also includes the Scottish and a favorite drink of theirs, whiskey. A by-product from the whiskey-making process called barley dross was applied to hides, which would cause the top layer to shrink, creating the pebbled texture. This method rendered the leather more weather resistant and durable. Today pebbled leather is made using large metal stamps to emboss the leather’s surface, giving it that pebbled finish.
