Leather made from the skin of a goat, believed to have been introduced in Europe by the Moors. One of the most durable leathers used in book binding, it is firm yet flexible. Morocco may be dyed colors, and in art bookbindings is used in onlays and inlays for decorative or pictorial effects on boards and spines.
