Craft Sha Leathercraft 1.4mm Full Grain Tan Low Vegetable Tanned Cowhide Leather
This full grain vegetable leather tan low is made in Japan from quality hide. Great for leathercraft, carving, stamping or making wallets, bags or cases.
This high quality, tan low vegetable tanned leather has been professionally tanned and skived. Tanlow does not have the natural tan color that most other leathers have, allowing it to be dyed with greater freedom compared to traditional, undyed leather.
This leather has been machine cut to the following size:
- A4 size (210mm by 297mm or 8.2 by 11.7), Similar to US Letter,
- A3 size (297mm x 420 mm, or 11.7 x 16.5), double the size of A4,
- A2 size (420mm x 594 mm, 16.5 x 23.4), four times the size of A4,
- 400g of usable scrap leather,
1.4mm is perfect for wallets, cases, pockets or pouches. Great for tooling or craving as well as dyeing.
Available in various thicknesses and colours. Great if you want to make your leathercraft in multiple colours.
Why pay for large hides or irregularly shaped scraps of leather that that will see large portions go to waste? Why risk getting inconsistent quality?
