For sale: waxy leathers for outdoor useoil tanned leathers on sale
Acadia was one of our most popular leathers a few years ago - very rustic and natural looking, wonderful dark brown color, shows
every scratch the poor steer ever endured, including brands and bug bites, and it's waxy and waterproof too.  A great leather.
This is what you think of when you think of leather, unless you're in the Garment District.  Acadia sides are chromium tanned, vegetable
retanned, and beautiful.  All sides in this lot are 19-20 sq ft, 4.5-5 oz in thickness, and priced at $125 per side, 48-state shipping included.
Sides WILL have a hole or scratch or brand or combination of such ailments.

USA bison leather for saleUSA bison leather for sale
Here's something new in our warehouse - genuine USA bison leather sides and partial hides.  This is a chromium tanned leather,

The smaller full sides are 15-16 sq ft; the larger sides are 17-20 sq ft.  The pieces/partials run like so:  Small = 2-3 sq ft
Medium = 4-8 sq ft, and the large ones are 9-11 sq ft.  Take your pick, USA shipping is included in the prices you'll see below.

Height of Land is a spot in Maine, just north of Rumford,  where you can drive to one of the greatest mountain views in all of creation.  The view from up there, overlooking

Well, our supplier got to poking around in their own warehouse and they discovered these sides, which are the hides from which those sleeve parts were cut.

Old Red Wine Sides - Save some Money!
Deep red leather hides on saleDark red leather cowhides for saleCraft grade leather hides on sale, discount leather hides
A new item here at Brettuns Village - Old Red Wine sides are chromium tanned and medium temper (regular for you old schoolers).  Thickness is 4 oz, or 1/16", or 1.6mm.
These are a deep burgundy color, smooth on the surface, and have a nice feel.  That's where the good news ends.  These were recovered from long term storage - they're fine, but they have
fold lines/creases, and discolored/lighter areas where sunlight must have come in through a window and done its thing.  So, bottom line?  Good leather, has some problems,
priced accordingly.  These are still, in spite of the problems, nice leather hides.  Deep red color, so we're calling it Red Wine. As in 'great big bottles of it.'  Belch. Excuse me.  Sides are about 11-12 sq ft each.
Old Red Wine Sides are $50 each - - and this price includes USA shipping.

These chromium tanned cowhide sides run about 16-18 sq ft each and are 3.25 to 3.5 oz in thickness (less than one sixteenth of an inch) and are about a medium/regular temper.
Finished with a semi glossy topcoat and then milled briefly to yield a wrinkly texture on the surface.  The gloss, the wrinkles, and the recent breezy weather combined to
force Charlie to say, in his usual understated, low volume way, 'Looks like a gosh danged raincoat to me.'  So there you have it.
Available in Black or Smoke, which is a charcoal gray.  Smoke sides only run about 10-12 sq ft each - small calf hides.  The black ones run 16-18 sq ft each.

running close to 17 sq ft.  Thickness is 3.5 to 4 oz (1/16" or 1.3-1.5mm), with a regular temper.  Surface is quite consistent in pattern, and the thickness is
very consistent as well.  ALL of these sides have a hole or scratch, so we're calling these B Grade - still good leather and maybe you're cutting smaller
items so a hole over there at that end of the hide is OK.  Small sides (17-19 sq ft), priced at $80 each.

2.75 oz cowhide sides, in yellow -orange or light pinkish red.  Sides run about 16 sq ft each and are not quite soft enough

By the way - a 'side' just means these are half of a full cowhide each - so you're buying a piece that's as big as what
