  • 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. Overall this article has a high cutting yield.
