About the British Standard

The British Standard 6715: 1991 is considered the correct definition of Chamois leather. It defines Chamois leather as:

"Leather made from the flesh split of sheepskin or lambskin, or from sheepskin or lambskin from which the grain (the top split) has been removed by frizing, and tanned by processes involving oxidation of marine oils in the skin."

DERI2000 Chamois Leather is tested regularly with the British Leather Confederation (BLC) and all DERI2000 Chamois exceeds the BS 6715: 1991.
