Furs, Hides, and Pelts.
Contrary to popular belief, a leatherworker's skills are not limited to the mere boiling and dying of pelts and skins, but also encompass those of an armorer and clothier, for a true leatherworker would never entrust his hides to the hands of another. Perhaps a leatherworker's most arduous and time–consuming task is procuring the various coats and furs necessary for his trade, which is the reason why many who choose this profession tend to dabble in hunting and trapping as well.
The Elezen have long been known for their skill in leathercrafting, yet for centuries their techniques were heavily guarded. However, when dwindling numbers of guildmasters were threatened with the disappearance of their immense wealth of compiled knowledge, Elezen leatherworkers set aside pride and reluctantly began revealing those techniques to a select few. As a result, the quality of Eorzean–made leather improved significantly, creating an increased demand for products using the superior–quality material.
Leatherworks can process the hides of Eorzea's wildlife into material for making armor, accessories, and various furniture.
Leatherworkers are defined by wielding a head knife in the main hand, and can equip an awl to the off-hand.
