Hides are inserted through a machine equipped with an abrasive cylinder which removes the top surface of the leather. 

In corrected grain leathers, this operation is carried out to remove the various imperfections (scars, tick bites, brands, etc.)  before a pigmented finish is applied.

In Nubuk and Suede, buffing is done to achieve the classic velvety look.
