The Alentejo has various leather clothing items: peliça (a coat buttoned at the front with fox fur on the collar), safões (normally are worn over trousers and are buttoned up with braids) and the samara (a sort of sleeveless coat made of sheepskin and with the fleece turned out). The skin undergoes a special treatment before being cut and attached. It is washed, tanned and dried in the sun or in an oven and then it is stretched and ready to be processed.
