Abstract

This study was designed to evaluate camel hide's leather physical and chemical characteristics for leather manufacturing. For study purpose thirty pieces of fresh camel hides were obtained from slaughterhouse in the three seasons of the year (winter, summer and autumn). Ten pieces at each season of entire male Arabi camel on an average age of 3 - 4 years were collected, storing and tanned. Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) was used for data analysis. The results revealed that, camel leather physical quality elongation, flexibility, resistance to grain cracking and tear strength were below the minimum threshold of Sudanese, Indian and Europe standards specification for cattle leather. On the other hand average tensile strength, breaking load, double holes tear strength and camel leather chemical quality parameters (Moisture, Ash, chrome oxide and fat) were in and above the minimum threshold of Sudanese, Indian and Europe standards specification for cattle leather.
