(hide) buffing


Explanation:
Buffing-F. Effleurure; G. Schleierspalt; I. Pellicola; S. Flor

a. The thin grain layer of leather removed from a cattle hide by the splitting
machine. In Spain the buffing may be from any hide or skin.

F. Poncage; G. Narbenscheleifen; I. Sfioratura o pomiciatura; S. Desflorado

b. The process of more or less removing the grain layer by abrasion. See
Buffed leather.

F. Chair rasee; G. Schleifen de Narbenseite; I. Smerigliatura da carne; S. Esmerilado

Removal of the flesh side of the leather by mechanical abrasion to produce a suede effect or to reduce the substance. Synonymous with Flutting q.v. and now in more common use. In Spain the buffing may be from any hide or skin.
