Whay is the difference between French Morocco and Morocco leather?
According to Bookbinding and the Conservation of Books: A Dictionary of Descriptive Terminology,
"The only common denominator among the numerous varieties of leather which now go under the name morocco is that they are all goatskins."
"[French morocco is a] leather similar in appearance to MOROCCO but produced from sheepskin. The term is both inaccurate and misleading."
There is a joke in there someplace but I will have to leave it to Rbell to figure it out. :laugh:
That is interesting info nonetheless and thanks for sharing it.
Some guy with a $49 online degree came up with the idea? (sheep skin -- get it? oh never mind...)
I think the answer may be on this web page
Morocco = Goat skin
French Morocco leather
Cambridge uses this designation for leather taken from a split calfskin, slightly thinner than other grades and therefore flexible and soft even when new. A French Morocco binding offers real leather at an economical price.
