This leather is most popular for Bible rebinds. It is very economically priced. Pure vegetable tannage, no metal contaminants such as chrome. River grain goat has a manipulated grain with a full pigmented finish. The leather takes gold foil easily. As there is a pigmented finish, it is not appropriate for blind tooling.
We select raw stock with a fine grain and lightweight. The strength/integrity of the leather is thus maintained with minimal splitting/shaving (If one were to purchase 1.0 mm leather and skive/shave the leather to 0.65 mm, the tear strength is reduced by approximately 50%) Our River Grain goat is especially pared to .65 mm with NO loss in strength
This leather is also suitable for small leather goods
All skins are 8-10 ft/each. Second grade.
