Here for your crafting pleasure, we continue on our quest to get leather out of our warehouse and into your workshop...
and because you don't always need pricey leather, Brettuns Village is pleased to offer you yet another leather bargain here on our site.
These are vegetable tanned sheep and goat hides (mixed) from the other side of the planet, and these hides have been split. That means the top grain leather is somewhere else now -
maybe in someone's new leather blazer, or on their head as a fashionable leather hat, or maybe it's a hand bag. Great, we're all happy for the top grain. So now we've got these,
called 'skiver backs' (rhymes with 'diver sacks'); thickness across each side will vary from 2 oz to 4.5 oz. They run about 3-5 sq ft of total surface area each, mellow temper.
Not everyone has a use for this stuff, we understand that. But, if you have a use for it, here's a stock-up deal: $10 for one hide, $20 for 3 hides, $100 for 20 hides, all with FREE USA shipping!
Lines on the table are square feet. Many of these look pretty good, complete hides, sort of a nubuck texture. No returns, exchanges, nor refunds on this stuff - sold as-is!
We have only one of each of the sides shown above-these are 6 oz veg sides and each has passed through a line of spray guns to color the surface as shown.
Choose your color by viewing the photos, please. Each of these will have a problem area, like a small hole or discoloration. Priced accordingly.
Priced according to the drop-down menu, 48-state USA shipping included. #4 has SOLD. #8 is THINNER - only 4.5 oz.

ZOMBIE SKIN Vegetable Tanned Hides - Just in Time for Halloween!
You have to get creative when trying to sell leather like this. It arrives, we open the pallet box, and we shriek. Help! These are vegetable tanned sheep hides, tanned in a way that really plumps up the fibers that comprise the hide, so it gets thick.
This type of tanning is done in far away lands, where sheep get raised and slaughtered for food, but the hides are available for tanning. So, your friendly sheep farmer whips out the knife he made himself from an old piece of rainspout, and he starts
skinning the animal. He's terrible at skinning, and these hides are all the proof you'll need. Knife cuts, abrasions, holes - but the leather is thick and pliable. These run about 3-5 sq ft each, 6-8 oz thickness, sale priced at $25 each, or 3 for $50, or 10 for $125, and FREE USA SHIPPING!
Veg Tan USA Cattlehide Skiver Quarter Hides
These are about a quarter of a full steer hide, running about 13-14 square feet of total surface area. They're thin - about 2.5 ounces, or 1.0mm. Vegetable tanned. There's no top grain on these - it was split off to make stuff - these are left over skiver backs. Thickness varies from 2 to 2.75 ounce, or about 1.0 to 1.1mm. Wet forms quite well, and you can paint it, dye it, use a woodburner on it, emboss it, etc. Close out priced at $25 each, or 3 for $50, or 10 for $120, all with FREE 48-State USA SHIPPING!
Veg Tan USA Cattlehide Skiver Sides
What you've got right here are USA cattlehide sides, running about 18-20 sq ft of surface area, and they're vegetable tanned. There's no top grain on these - it was split off to make stuff - these are left over skiver backs. Thickness varies from nothing - zero ounce - to 6 oz. You'll need to be creative with how you use them, but the options are many. This stuff soaks up dye, waxes, oils - whatever you want to throw at it. Wet forms pretty well too. Sale priced at $35 each, or 3 for $75, or 10 for $150, and FREE 48-State USA SHIPPING!
Choose 1 hide for $20, 10 hides for $175, or 25 hides for $300 - with FREE USA Shipping!
Imported from a land far, far away, these are vegetable tanned goat hides that were split down to about 3.5 ounce in thickness (1.4mm), and sanded to make a nice, suede finish.
This leather is one of those 'warehouse cleanouts' that we find from time to time - we currently have an inventory of roughly 42.8 bob-zillion of them. Sold as is, no returns on this item.
This is a very soft leather, reasonably clean for a warehouse find, and is a useful leather if you like to dye hides to your own color needs or if you just like using veg tan to make your crafts.
Get one for $20 flat, or 10 hides for $175, or 25 hides for $300, and, as always, since 1994, we sell our leather with FREE USA SHIPPING!
