A dream about leather can symbolize durability, toughness, and resilience. The exact meaning of leather vary quite a bit, however.

It may reflect your personal strength and ability to withstand hardships. If you're wearing or touching something made of leather, it could indicate a desire for protection or a need to shield yourself from potential harm. It could also suggest that you are trying to project a certain image or persona to others. In some cultures, leather is associated with wealth and luxury, so dreaming about it could reflect your aspirations or feelings about your social status.

Leather can be a deep and multifaceted dream symbol to interpret. To say without any doubts, I'd need to really dig deep into the dreamer's life and current environment.

Dreaming about leather, in Freudian terms, may denote a yearning for tactile stimulation, a manifestation of the pleasure principle.

The dream-symbol can have many permutations however. It could symbolize a subconscious desire for physical contact or intimacy. If you're wearing or touching something made of leather, it might suggest a latent need for self-assertion or dominance, as leather often connotes power and control. Alternatively, it could represent a defense mechanism, a psychological armor against perceived threats. The luxurious aspect of leather might also reflect an unconscious wish-fulfillment, a yearning for affluence or social recognition. However, each dream is unique to the dreamer, and these interpretations should be contextualized within the individual's personal experiences and emotions.
