Tejas Lizard Skins in
These are smallish Tejas
lizard skins, about two hands in size. They're not big. The
lines on our layout table (on the left)
are square feet. Nice
rustic color, sort of a pecan pie filling brown, with good skin texture.
This skins are quite thin so are best used
where they won't be stressed.

Whip Snake Skins - Two Patterns!
Whip snakes are prized for
their very even scale size. OK, not really, we made that up, but
the scales really do seem to be
about the same everywhere.
Some well-meaning person or persons sewed long skins together in a striped
pattern, then cut their new
snake blanket on the diagonal,
so what we've got here are pieced-together skins, striped pattern, in either
Mahogany/Bone stripes or

Ostrich Hides - Only Two Colors Left!
These are full ostrich hides,
derived from farm-raised ostrich. COGNAC ONLY (sold out of Mahogany and Large Pecan). Typical size, about 14 sq ft on
average, with about two-thirds of that showing good quill bumps.
We also have some in the
Pecan color that are smaller - 6 to 8 sq ft. Every one of these ostrich
hides will have holes in it here and there.
These are tanned full substance,
which means the hides were not thinned by the tannery at all. Feels
thick, and this is not a soft leather. Firm.
You can shave the back if
you so choose, and these hides will also accept waxes, paints, dyes, stains,
or oils as you see fit. Choose your color,
The full size Cognac ones are $100
per hide, USA shipping included. The smaller Pecan ones are $70 each,
USA shipping included.
Are we clear on this? These are SECONDS and will have holes and scratches and dye spots and other blemishes. No returns - keep the bird.
Carp Skins - FOUR COLORS!!
Fish leather? Yup.
You got it, Chester. Fish get skinned, but why throw the skins away?
Tan 'em. Color 'em. Finish 'em. Sell 'em.
Tanned in Canada, available
from us up here in Maine by the skin. Each carp skin is about 18
inches long and 4 inches wide.
$12 each, USA shipping included.
Dyed a nice, dark black, charcoal, or indigo color (deep navy) and get
this - no fishy odor!
Lots of texture from the
'scale pockets' and the leather feels soft - great for use on garments
or on any item that needs more texture.
GLAZED CARP SKINS - Nice
Take your pick, color-wise
- only one hide of each available right now, but the next shipment is expected
These skins are glazed,
meaning pressed flat and coated with a clear coat to make them shiny.
You can feel
the scale pockets with your
fingers, but they don't stand up like on the regular skins sold above.
Glazed carp leathers, $20
each, USA shipping included. Available colors will appear in the
Exotic Leather Scrap,
from the Garment Industry Caiman, Ostrich, Gator,
Ostrich, Kudu, Ostrich, Antelope, Ostrich, Ostrich, Stingray, Emu,
Ostrich, and More Ostrich in a Wide Variety of
Colors and Textures
This scrap leather is chromium
tanned exotic species - mostly ostrich, but with some smll pieces of
caiman, alligator, snake, and some other things
like kudu, gazell, frog,
and fish leathers (but they don't smell bad at all). This is all
from the high end garment business, left over from production.
Pieces are smallish,
than your hand, but may be useful as trims or on small projects like
earrings. You'll think something up -
we know you can do it.
Sold in five or ten-pound boxes; our prices include shipping to any address
in the 48 contiguous United States.
Maybe this stuff can just
sort of slither its way out of our warehouse and over to your place.
That gives us the shivers.
OK, let's get something straight:
Most of this scrap is from ostrich or emu - a variety of colors, but
a lot of what you receive
will be ostrich and/or emu and that's the way it is. No returns on
Smaller pieces, a lot of
ostrich/emu, and some pieces of the other critters listed. Boop,
there it is.
