Description

Calfskin, also referred to as “kipskin,” is the ultimate liner. It’s only 2-3 oz., and it takes dye very well. Dye the liner the same color as your project or dye it a different color from the face leather for a captivating contrast. If you need to line a belt or arm guard, leave it natural to avoid dye rub-off. And because calfskin forms well, it’s a great choice for lining holsters. Apart from being a great liner, kipskin is also a gorgeous canvas for tooling and stamping. Designs seem to come alive on its blemish-free surface.


Difference

Veg tanned the old-fashioned way using tree bark and other natural tannins, this kipskin leather is prized for both its beauty and its workability. On average, veg tanned hides undergo a one to three-month process that’s reflected in the beauty, workability and cost of the final product.
