The Return of a Legend:  WICHITA FALLS COWHIDE SIDES
Large cowhide leather sides on saleNatural looking leather for saleBranded leather sides on sale
Leather hides with brands on themNice brown leather for saleLarge cowhide leather sides on sale
One of our most popular leathers a decade ago - Wichita Falls is back!  This nice, extra large side leather got its name from the mud that was found in the alleyway behind houses in
a part of Wichita Falls (Texas) that mostly got flattened in one of those little storms they have out that way - you know - the ones that make things spin around or something like that.
Anyway, that mud out back was the same color as this leather, hence the name.  Smooth surface, naked finish so you can see the brands and bites and nicks and scrapes and scratch marks
and hey would you look at that another brand over there, and some holes here and there.  Very natural looking sides, 5 oz in thickness, regular temper - a great, versatile leather.
All sides in this lot are over 25 square feet of surface area, and some are over 30 square feet.  Whoppers, in other words.  Priced accordingly -
please check the drop down menu for current pricing.  Don't forget - 48-state shipping is included!

Sunrise WigWam Sides
20-22 sq ft, 4.5-5 oz, Firm Cowhide Sides


Note that this new batch of WigWam has a semi glossy surface and is made on a golden crust leather, as shown

If you need a rustic looking leather then this is the stuff for you.  Sunrise Wigwam sides are a reddish brown color and have lead a tough life, so many of these sides have some problems.
Please expect to see a brand, maybe two if the animal was sold from one place to another.  Some scratches where he/she couldn't help but rub against that fence post,
a hole maybe - nothin bigger than your thumb, but we see them every so often.  Same size as a bullet.  How was deer season out on the ranch, Clem?  GREAT!  We got a whopper!
Thickness is 4.5 to 5 oz, or 1.8 mm to 2.0mm, or a little heavier than 1/16 of an inch.
WigWam sides are all over 20 square feet of surface area and are $150 each, 48-state USA shipping included

Expect scars, brands, discolorations, bad spots, messy zones and districts, horrific maladies of the finish, and all manner of rustication.  No returns on this leather - it is what it is.
***Important Note: Our most recent shipment of WigWam is more glossy than previous batches, and the sides are much cleaner -
yes, they have brands, and maybe some scratches, but the coloration is very consistent.  Rustic still, but also beautiful!***

7-8oz Vegetable Tanned Sunrise WigWam Tooling Leather - Sides or Shoulders!


Take our most popular finished leather of all time and place that color and surface on a pure vegetable tanned cowhide - what do you get?
Sunrise WigWam Tooling Leather - it sounds cool and it IS cool.  We made up this batch on heavy tooling sides; 7-8 oz in thickness (2.8-3.2mm).
This leather can be wet formed or molded, tooled, carved, stamped, or just throw it on the couch and look at it.  It's that pretty.
Most sides have a brand, some sides or shoulders will have a small hole somewhere - pinky sized.
Sides are all over 21 sq ft, double shoulders are all over 12 sq ft of surface area, and a consistent 7 to 8 oz throughout.
Sides = $195.00   Double Shoulders = $135.00   48-state USA shipping included!

Big Pine Timber Buck Sides -
They're TAN and THICK and LARGE
Very heavy leather hides on saleVery heavy leather hides for sale
Thick tan leather hides for saleVery heavy leather hides on sale with free shippingLeather hides wholesale
Our latest addition to the mess in the warehouse - this is Big Pine, one of the Timber Buck series of leathers
 that are tanned on USA cattle sides, and most of them have BIG HONKIN BRANDS to prove it, cowboy.  Big Pine is a nubuck leather, which means the surface is lightly sanded,
not as nappy as suede, but not smooth like a finished or full grain leather either.  This one feels nice and natural, and it also feels heavy, trust us on this, as we unloaded these
from the truck in a blazing Maine heat wave (73 degrees)(felt like a millionty degrees).  All sides in this lot are over 20 sq ft of surface area, so they're big, and thickness is 6 oz throughout.
These are tannery culls, so expect a brand or a hole or both, and some of the running iron brands are so big we swear there must be some heavy drinking going on out on the range.
Big Pine is a very nice, natural tan color, not green at all so if the photos above look green to you, well, they're not - they're tan.  Like a pine board - get it?  Try to keep up here.
Big Pine Sides  $125 each, 48-state USA shipping included.

In the past we've sold crates and crates of leather sleeves that were supposed to go on lettermen jackets - remember those things?
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.
Naturally, our team of PhD employees has named this leather 'Sleeve Sides.'  Nice job, boys.  Take the rest of the week off.
These are large sides, all over 20 square feet of surface area, 3 oz in thickness, and mellow temper.  Available colors are listed in the drop-down menu,
and they're all priced at $90 each, USA shipping included.  Get 6 sides for $500, any color combination subject to availability.

THICK VEGETABLE TANNED COWHIDE HALF HIDES
BELTING LEATHER!
Caramel brown belting leather hides on saleGlossy brown leather hides on saleheavy belt leather hides for sale
leather hides that will make good beltsgood strap leather hides for sale free shippingthick leather for making knife sheaths
Right around the holidays we always seem to need a belt.  The stresses of the season, the pressure to find the right gift, being on time to all those holiday gatherings.
Who couldn't use a good, stiff belt at this time of year?  It's just good sense - you don't want to waltz into the company holiday party and have your britches hit the floor.
What?  You thought what?  I don't get it - I said a belt - are you feeling OK?  Get with it, Rudolph.  Our caramel Belting hides are from USA cattle, vegetable tanned
and finished with this glossy caramel color, compressed to make the leather firm, and staked (dried while being stretched) to help the leather resist further stretching.
These hides are FIRM and almost all of them have a brand.  These are Double Butts- the entire back half of the cowhide, and they run about 28-30 square feet of surface area.
Thickness is heavy at 8-9 oz, so these belting hides weigh about 15-16 pounds each!  Of course, they all hit our loading dock on a day when it was just yours truly working out back
and the pallet jack was nowhere to be found.  Now I need a belt.  Not a leather one, either.  Keep up, man.  Note:  This is not tooling leather - it's been compressed.
Caramel Belting Double Butts, 28-30 sq ft each, 8-9 oz, $150 each.  Price includes shipping to any address in the 48 contiguous United States.

Black leather hides with a fine grain on sale wholesaleThick leather for blacksmith aprons
Need black leather that's thick?  Need it to be in the form of cowhide sides that are over 20 square feet of surface area each?
Need it about 7 to 8 oz in thickness?  Need it with a matte finish instead of shiny glossy spiffy big city looking?  Need it chromium tanned and thick but still flexible?
Boy, you sure are needy.  Why don't you just buy this leather - it's called Black 78 and has a smooth surface as shown.  Regular Temper.
Expect chalk marks from the tannery inspectors - cleans off with a damp rag.  Need a rag?  Need some water to dampen it?  Sheesh.
$150 each, 48-state USA shipping included.



RAINCOAT SIDES - Two Colors
black cowhide leather for pursesblack cowhide leather, PU coatedblack cowhide leather by the side

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.

UPTOWN BLACK COWHIDE SIDES
Chromium Tanned Lightweight but Firm Leather
Glossy black leather hides wholesale free shippingGlossy black leather hides on salefirm black leather hides for sale
A new addition to the line-up here at Brettuns Village Leather, where all of the employees are physicallly attractive and mentally exceptional but
we all take our daily marching orders from a black lab, is this glossy, firm temper black USA cattlehide.  Smooth, glossy, and firm, 2 to 2.5 oz in thickness (that's 0.8 to 1.0 mm).
Expect to receive a side that has a hole or two, and there may be some spots where the finish is mottled, so this leather has a lot of character.  We like it.
Sold in two sizes - larger sides are over 20 square feet of surface area, smaller sides are 17-19 sq ft.  Large sides are $80 each, smaller sides are $70 each, and yes,
USA shipping is included (note: AK, HI, PR, GU, etc - your leather will be folded to fit in USPS boxes)

BLACK JACKET!
Nice Leather with a Great Texture
leather hides for making motorcycle jacketsSoft black leather hides with nice texture
Jacket leather hides on salePebble grain black leather hides for saleSoft black leather hides at low cost
Tanned by Curtidos Bengala, this is Black Jacket - their well-known motorcycle leather.  Sides run over 20 sq ft (this means large) and have a nice texture on the surface, as shown above.
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.  Some of these sides
have a hole or scratch, so we've sorted those into the B Grade category - still good leather and maybe you're cutting smaller items so a hole over there at that end of the hide is OK.
So, we have Grade A sides, and we have Grade B sides, and we have each of these in two sizes - over 20 sq ft, or under 20 sq ft.  Take your pick - priced as shown in the drop-down menu.
These prices INCLUDE shipping to any address in the 48 contiguous United States.
