Leather is an animal skin used to make item frames, armor and books.

Obtaining[edit]

Drops from animals[edit]

Cows, mooshrooms, horses, donkeys, mules, llamas, and hoglins drop 0–2 leather upon death. The maximum amount is increased by 1 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 5 leather with Looting III.

Foxes that are holding leather also have an 8.5%‌ (17200)‌[JE only] or 100%‌‌[BE only] chance to drop the leather they are holding upon death. Alternatively, a player can drop a food item, causing the fox to drop the leather.

Leather can be obtained as a "junk" item from fishing.
