Richard Morse Posted February 7, 2007 Share Posted February 7, 2007 Are not the correct leather terms for skin orientation "flesh side" and "hair" side? FLESH SIDE is the side of the skin being next to the flesh ( flesh is the fat and muscle between the skin and the bone) I wonder if most people would think of FLESH as being a person's SKIN. Afterall, we are all familiar with "flesh" colored crayons (which are now called "peach"). Amongst the many definitions of flesh at Dictionary.com is "the surface of the human body; skin". At the least, the term FLESH is contradictory and confusing.HAIR SIDE the part we shave in the morningMaybe YOU do!
