Suede leather kippot

Rabbi Eliezer S. Weisz

Question
Dear Rabbi, I want to offer to all the guest at my sons Bar Mitzvah a suede leather kippa. As the suede kippa is an animal product has it to be kosher? Are all rules applying to kosher meat also valid for a leather suede kippa? What are the points that I should check before buying a suede leather kippa?
Answer
No requirements other than that the Kippa should cover most of the head - the rules of Kosher apply to eating and not to the use of suede.
