  Leather stamping - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Leather stamping involves the use of shaped implements (stamps) to create an imprint onto a leather surface, often by striking the stamps with a mallet.
Most stamping is performed on tree-bark tanned leather that has been dampened with water, as the water makes the leather softer and able to be compressed by the design being pressed or stamped into it.
After the leather has been stamped, the design stays on the leather as it dries out, but it can fade if the leather becomes wet and is flexed.
