Name

leather

Leather is an item that was added along with the introduction of cows. It can be acquired by killing cows and horses, which may drop 0-2 pieces of leather upon death, putting rabbit hide in your crafting table, or rarely from fishing.

Leather is used to craft leather armor, the lowest tier. Despite it being the weakest armor, and not being too difficult to obtain, it is sometimes much harder to obtain than iron. Despite leather armour being weak, it is also the most customizable, being easier to enchant than diamond and also dyeable. Other sets do not have these advantages.

Leather is also required for the crafting of books, which in turn are needed to create bookshelves and the enchantment table. Leather is also needed to craft item frames which are used to display items or blocks.
