For your convenience, skins are already pared to .5 mm. This represents a cost-saving to many people as the leather will not need to be further pared.
THIS LEATHER IS DIRT CHEAP
Tanned to close to .5 mm, then shaved to substance to retain strength. (For example, leather which has been tanned to 1.0 mm then skived, shaved or pared to .5 mm will lose MORE THAN 75% of its tear and flex strength)
This leather is vegetable tanned (it does not contain chrome, as we are a trustworthy source of leather). There are no mechanical modifications made to the grain such as boarding, plating, glazing, etc.
Suggested for bindings, labels, linings, etc.
The average size is 45 sq dm. (5.0 sq ft), for TR grade, 40 sq dm (4.5 sq ft) for LS grade. Skins range in size from 35-75 sq dm. There is no selection for size. We will try to ship you an assortment of skins which average around 45-55 sq dm
