Raw material plays a very important role in making a quality product. Even the most outstanding manufacturing methods cannot compensate for defective materials. In line with that the raw material and accessories in housed are inspected before adding on the stock.


  • Leather is checked with the approved swatch (color, shade, thickness, texture etc). If it doesn’t match, is returned. Then the leather is selected in three different grades on the basis of usability avoiding defects.
    • Grade A – usability 90 – 100%
    • Grade B – Usability 80 – 89%
    • Grade C – Usability 70 – 79%
After making this grading, it has been reported to the Top Management for his decision. Normally Grade C is returned.
