Leather skiving, also called shaving or splitting, is the process where leather is run through a machine that reduces thickness. Automotive upholsterers will commonly have leather skived to make wrapping panels easier. Dash boards, center consoles and other panels that have tight curves are some examples. Other situations include areas that have tight tolerances or small gaps where a standard leather would be too thick to fit. Get a sample here.
