Moleskin – for those who need to be thick-skinned
Fortunately, the name is not part of the Moleskin program - otherwise the wonderful material would disqualify itself directly for vegetarians. And yet it is sometimes translated into German as ‘mole fur’.
One thing is certain: this is not an animal material! Instead, the Moleskin is a very robust fabric that protects you from cold and rain and occasionally appears under the name English leather or pilot fabric. Its home is in Manchester, where it was first made using special looms.
