mocha ( mocha suede )

A leather produced from the Arabian blackhaired sheep (commonly called blackhair mochas). It is a chrome-tanned leather, with the grain removed by mechanical abrading rather than by hand frizzing. It is suede-finished on the flesh side. This leather retains most of the fibers of the skin, and its particular fineness is due to the closeness of the fibers of the skin. (351 )
