•Featuring the same tannage as our Hermann Oak® Strap Sides in a 3X grade that can include some defects, such as open scars, cuts, holes and/or stains.
When you take a close look at this leather, you’ll notice a subtle open grain that helps you attain greater depth in your tooling, stamping and carving for details that will seem to leap off your finished work. This leather also molds like a dream and showcases a natural color that’s beautiful as is or can be dyed and oiled to achieve the look you desire. Veg tanned without any harsh chemicals, this leather comes from our friends at Hermann Oak®, a tannery that has over a century of experience producing the finest leather.
Veg tanned the old-fashioned way using a tightly-controlled process that utilizes tree bark and other natural tannins, this 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.
Good for small projects, prototypes, and projects that will be dyed a darker color.
