Nubuck – Cattle hide leather buffed on the grain side to give a velvety surface; white or colored. Aniline leather finished by lightly buffing or sanding the grain surface to produce a velvety nap. Nubuck has a much finer nap than suede because the grain layer has a tight fibre. Nubuck is usually a term that refers to top-grain leather that has been sanded or buffed on the grain side (the outside) producing a velvet-like surface. Some of the identifying characteristics of Nubuck are similar to pure-aniline leather - it is very soft to the touch. Nubuck is similar to suede, but suede is created from the inner side of a hide while Nubuck is created from the outer side of the hide. Suede is less durable and may become dirty more quickly.
Nubuck is a type of leather with a soft, velvety surface and is some of the most expensive leather to purchase.
