  • Restocked:¬†Yes, every 3-4 months
  • Yield:¬†High 85%+,¬†With a natural product like leather, there can be areas with neck and back wrinkles, veins, scars, bites, loose grain, but in general¬†this article can expect an overall high cutting area. Double Shoulders also increase the cutting yield due to having no bellies where most the defects and loose grain are located. If you require large cuts for¬†bigger¬†products¬†like totes, duffles, etc., we recommend whenever possible ordering a full hide. This leather being full aniline (meaning the leather is very natural with no extra finishing on the surface to hide any flaws) darker colors will better hide any areas of concern. A key skill of using full aniline leather is the ability to work¬†less desirable areas of the hide into¬†the¬†less visible areas of your projects.

      ADDITIONAL DETAILS

      Museum Vegetable Tanned Leather comes from Conceria Walpier Tannery in Tuscany, Italy. They are well known for their traditional methods of vegetable tanning with tree barks that go back 100's of years. Walpier is a member of the exclusive Pelle Vegetale Consortium certifying they tan leather using the strict traditional vegetal methods. We offer serialized certification tags you can attach to your finished products HERE 

      Museum is similar to Buttero but with a slightly contrasting aniline finish that brings out some subtle tones in the leather. This leather is more firm than a vacchetta leather, this stiffness give a nice rigidity to projects. It is full vegetable tanned and will patina nicely over time.

      This is their top grade, it is full grain and come in double shoulders which means no belly and a much higher usable hide. The colors are very nice and rich, it is full aniline meaning dyed with no color correction ensuring the leather has that natural look and feel to it. It is easy to cut and skive. It is some of the most versatile leather we have found. Their beautiful colors will provide near endless  options and combinations to mix into your projects.

      LEATHER SPLITTING

      • Leather splitting is a custom service available down to your preferred thickness
      • Please note split leather can't be returned
      • There is a tolerance to leather splitting. While we have invested a lot of time and training into hitting a tighter tolerance range than advertised, sometimes the¬† leather articles and differing densities require the full tolerance range.¬†
      • Leather tolerance is denoted by +/- which means the leather can be both above and below that number by the denoted amount.
        • Example 1.2mm +/- 0.1mm.
        • This means that the leather could come anywhere ranging from 1.1-1.3mm across the hide. Most the time this amount is indiscernible to the naked eye, but should be noted if measuring with precise equipment
      • How we gauge the leather is with a thickness gauge that can reach both the edges and middle of the hide. We apply a moderate amount of pressure (Not too hard and not too soft)
      • Again our tolerances are tighter than the tanneries. We are usually well inside the range, especially on panels, but occasionally need the full range. Tolerance ranges are as follows:¬†
        • Splitting Panels: +/- (0.1mm).
        • Splitting Full Hides & Half Hides:¬† +/- 0.15mm
        • No Splitting (From Tannery Splitter):¬† +/- 0.2mm
      • The width of our splitter is 30 inches. If you have a hide that is larger we will trim the hide to fit and return you both pieces. We cut off the belly section leaving you the nicest area of the hide in tact.
      • Due to it requiring often multiple passes we do not send the split flesh part.
