New! This is a good old utility leather. Our new Peanut Butter Cowboy sides are large, all over 20 square feet, 5.5 oz in thickness (2.2mm). Regular temper, good for bags or cases or straps or lighter duty belts or make a holder for all those remote controls that are piled up on the coffee table over to the parlor. Peanut Butter Cowboy, or PBC as we know it, is a chromium tanned USA steer hide, and all tanning and finishing was done here in the USA as well.
New! Super soft black garment sides are all larger than 20 sq ft of surface area and are black as black should be. Very soft USA steer hides, 2.5 ounce in thickness, mellow temper so this is OK for garments or handbags. Surface is slightly glossy. A very nice leather.

A new addition to the line-up here at Brettuns Village Leather: Texas Orange natural sides. This is a 2.75/3 oz chromium tanned leather that looks and acts like veg tan, but this one won't fall apart on your if it gets wet. Smooth surface, wonderful orange-tan color. Looks like leather. How about that?

Another new addition to the line-up here at Brettuns Village Leather: Black Softee Textured sides. This is a chromium tanned leather that was milled to soften it, and it has a wonderful surface texture that will remind you that it's real leather every time you look at it. We think. 3 to 3.5 oz in thickness (1.2 to 1.4mm). IMPORTANT: Every one of these has a large brand or hole in the hide; these are tannery sorting rejects that just want to find a new home.

NEW LEATHERS HAVE ARRIVED! Here at BV we received a bumper crop shipment of regular temper colorful handbag leathers, all made on USA cattlehides and all tanning and finishing was done in the USA too!
Originally intended to be used for handbag/purse production (yes, it came from that company), these are color sample runs that were left over after tannery selection.
Sides (half of a cowhide each) are LARGE - all sides in this lot are over 20 square feet of surface area, and they're thick; running 5.5 ounces (2.2mm),
We have twelve colors available, but only about a dozen of each color, so we expect that some will sell out quickly. No pressure, not from us.
Left to right: Mustard,
Royal, Orange, Blue Steel, Burgundy, Smoke Stack, Wedgewood, Lip Stick, Jade, Pink, Aquamarine (IMPORTANT! The Aquamarine sides have a yellowish mottling that was supposed to make it look like you were under water down on one of those tropical islands - it's cool but we want you to know it's not an even aquamarine color all across the hide), and Cherry Red.
The last photo shows Regular Red, Rosey Cheeks (pinkish red), Deep Burgundy, & black. Choose your colors, and don't forget- these ship FREE to any USA address. If you're in AK, HI, or the Territories your leather will be folded to fit in US Postal Service boxes.
This button has the other colors:
These are chromium tanned USA cattlehide sides, averaging about 16 sq ft each and 4.5 oz in thickness (2.0 mm), with a smooth surface. This leather that has what we call 'regular' temper, or you can call it 'medium soft.'
This is a close-out lot that came to us from a factory clean-out, so some of the sides have spots along the edge that have faded due to exposure to light. Still, 95% of each side is fine and true blue. Mid-Blue Sides are $70 each, 48-state USA shipping included.
