French term or phrase: Vache grain porc
The character is describing a suitcase which is in "vache grain porc". Are there any experts in leather goods out there? Many thanks

Notes to answerer
Asker: thanks for this example but I'm still not absolutely convinced I can use this exact expression in the context. My doubts are compounded by the fact that there are hardly any hits for pigskin-grained cowide. As the suitcase in the context dates from 1928 maybe it's a too expensive leather to be used anymore. However, I would like to understand how leather from a cow can be "pigskin grained". Thanks for your help anyway
