Palmelatto is a Vegetable Tanned Leather from the La Bretagna 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. La Bretagna is a member of the exclusive Pelle Vegetale Consortium that ensure leather is tanned using the traditional vegetal methods 

Palmellato is a unique leather article. It is a version of vacchetta which is made with more oils to give it that nice balance of firm and supple. The Palmellato is an embossed cross grain design that has a nice slight 2 tone effect. It is more matte in finish and has a great look for small and larger projects.  This veg tan article comes in their are top grades 1-2 and are full grain.

The veg tan will have an amazing patina as it ages. The leather is dyed completely through and has a nice soft nap flesh side. This leather has a great feel in the hand and it is easy to cut and skive.  We are confident this will be one of your favorite leathers and will give your projects a unique and premium look

  • 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.
