What is another word for buckskin?

Pronunciation: [bˈʌkskɪn] (IPA)

Buckskin refers to the soft, pliable leather that is made from the hide of a deer or elk. Although it is a popular term, there are several other synonyms that can be used in its place. Some of these synonyms include suede, nubuck, fawn, and cinnamon. Suede is commonly made from the underside of a cow's skin and has a velvet-like texture. Nubuck is similar to suede, but it undergoes an additional sanding process to create a slight nap or grain pattern. Fawn is a light brown shade, similar to the color of a young deer. Cinnamon is a darker brown shade that resembles the spice it is named after. All of these synonyms can be used in place of buckskin to describe the texture, color, or appearance of leather.

Famous quotes with Buckskin

  • The alien stood in shadow and he looked, Enoch thought, more than ever like the cruel clown. His lithe, flowing body had the look of smoked, tanned buckskin. The patchwork color of his hide seemed to shine with a faint luminescence and the sharp, hard angles of his face, the smooth baldness of his head, the flat, pointed ears pasted tight against the skull lent him a vicious fearsomeness. If one did not know him for the gentle character that he was, Enoch told himself, he would be enough to scare a man out of seven years of growth.
    Clifford D. Simak
