Dragon hide is the skin of dragons, which is used to make clothing. Where Muggles would wear leather, wizards and witches will wear dragon hide. The skin is very tough, impervious to a multitude of spells, and provides immense protection, while at the same time having the same texture and appearance as the skin of snakes. Dragon hide is used to make gloves, boots, jackets, belts, and shields. The hide of the Swedish Short-Snout is notably popular in demand. Dragon hide being very tough, is very useful when handling corrosive or poisonous potion ingredients harmful to the skin, to prevent skin irritation or damage.
