  • Actually, Niger doesn't rhyme with tiger. It is pronounced 'nee-jair'.

  • The tiger is not native to Africa. Fortunately, though, they have a country to rhyme with it, ie. Niger *blushes*

  • Uh...no, I don't have that map on me, unfortunately. But I'm fairly certain that the name for this type/treatment of leather derived from the country of the same name. Another type is morocco, which I'm sure I'll see a map for at some point. ;-)

  • But it's also listed here as a soft goatskin, not just as a country (which would have a capital N at any rate). So... do we have a map of a soft goatskin? .... Anyone? .... Bueller?
