leather

Minecraft Item

Leather is an item that was added in Alpha Release along with the introduction of Cows . Leather armor is the weakest armor, but is the easiest to make for a starter set, due to leather being easily obtainable by killing cows. It can be acquired by killing cows, which may drop 0-2 pieces of leather upon death with or without a weapon. However, attacking a cow without a weapon will reduce the chance of dropping leather.Leather can also be used (as of the 1.3 update) to craft books. 24 pieces are required to craft the full set of armor, and 1 leather and 3 paper are required to craft books . In the 1.4 update, leather can be used to make an item frame. An item frame can be crafted with a leather in the middle, surrounded by sticks.
