Elephant leather is primarily produced from the body of the African elephant. These skins are called panels. Other parts of the elephant are also used but in much smaller quantities.
Common colors include black, dark brown and tan but it can be dyed in a variety of colors. The leather is prized for its depth of character and texture, durability and softness.
Elephant leather is used to make belts, shoes, boots, jackets, upholstery, gun holsters and pool cues.
