but please, let me do it

The British Standard (BS 6715: 1991) is widely considered to offer the correct definition of chamois leather. This defines chamois leather as:

Leather made from the skin of the mountain antelope or Chamois.

Leather made from the flesh split of sheepskin or lambskin, or from sheepskin or lambskin from which the grain (the top split) has been removed by frizing, and tanned by processes involving oxidation of marine oils in the skin, using either solely such oils (full oil chamois) or first an aldehyde and then such oils (combination chamois).
