What is Pony skin? Is it really what the name suggests?
It is actually most often used as a generic term for hair-on-hide. In general cow hide is used as "ponyskin".
Like leather and sheepskin, ponyskin is a by-product. Leather has hair too before it is shaved.
Being a by product it means that its humane, meaning an animal isnt raised specifically for production of that material.
Actual 100% authentic ponyskin is a rarity, it depends on the manufacturers and products and if it is 100% authentic ponyskin then it will state this on the product. We would only ever offer 100% authentic pony skin if it is obtained from humane methods and only ever as a by product from an animal that wasnt reared for this purpose.
