  • Yield:¬†Moderate¬†70%+,¬†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¬†moderate cutting area. Bellies are an economic cut and best for small leather goods. 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.

    This veg tan leather is from the belly cut, it is full grain and has a nice balance between supple and firm. Traditionally the belly cut is a lower grade item, but the tannery does a great job selecting bellies that have great yield. So if you are making smaller leather goods this is an economic way to get into Buttero and will save you some money. Same great leather at a great value price point!

    It is easy to cut and skive. The veg tan's firmness will give some rigidity to your products and even allows for great molding applications. It is some of the most versatile leather we have found. Their beautiful colors will provide near endless color options and combinations to mix into your projects.

    • 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.
