I don’t know what is traditional for one, AG, but pigskin is about the toughest leather out there. It has some texture as well, for good grip. You can get different weights of leather. Leather comes in oz. weights, and each oz. represents 1/64th of an inch thickness. I would think that thickness would be big factor in what would work best.

I just got home from Tandy Leather with some 2 oz. pigskin splits I’m going to use to line the base of some trays.
