split leather
Explanation:
Spalt: A layer of hide that has been split two or more times. Coarser surface than grain leather (narv); found in many different thicknesses and is heat-resistant as well.

Nappa (or glove leather): A thin, soft, durable, pliable, and moisture-resistant full-grained leather. Often used for leather jackets, bags, and clothing. Made from an unsplit sheepskin, lambskin, or kidskin.
