Leather makes a durable floor and indeed was one of the first flooring materials, predating stone and wood. Leather flooring was first used in the caveman days, when complete hides were sewn together to cover dirt floors. The appearance of a leather floor covering actually improves with age and wear. Anyone walking over a leather floor immediately notices how different it is from hardwood or stone. Footsteps are muffled and it is possible to feel the softness of the leather beneath one’s feet. Leather tiles can be embossed during manufacture to give a textured surface and can be laid in various patterns.
