.5 mm Vegetable Goat

(1 customer review)

$23.00$39.00

SKU: N/A Category:

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

TR Grade :   Table Run

LS Grade:   For labels and spines,  badly  misshapen skins,

 

This is a new product, that just arrived as of 9/14/22.   In looking through the leather, many of the skins are misshapen,  not square.  Should this change, we will update this description

This light blue-gray leather will be used to cover modern books. It is thin enough that I doubt I will need to pare it.

Fantastic bookbinding leather. Extremely thin so no paring is needed. Very easy to work with.

I am really partial to the smooth historical goat for its durability and strength in making bellows for my high end concertinas. With the .7mm weight, I have to split it to.5mm on a small hand splitter. This works pretty well, but to have the same material in .5mm means I get the full strength of the leather’s structure at the thickness I need. Concertina bellows endure thousands of hours of constant flexing over their lifetimes which can be well over 100 years. Having leather I can expect to last lifetimes with instruments passed down over many generations means Musician’s will be enjoying my instruments long after I’m forgotten.

This liner is amazing for the price, and it breaks in nicely, plus it looks beautiful!
