Goatskin Offcuts

I have been able to get supplies of grade 1 Nigerian goatskin in bundles of single colours and different sizes.

This is top quality grade 1 Nigerian goatskin, fully vegetable tanned, simply the best you can get, no joke this is the best quality Nigerian goatskin available from anywhere, substance between 0.9 - I.2mm, so it will need very little paring.

The mixed colour bundles are now available in different size off cuts,

Large piece off cuts, measuring 350x150mm. 10 large pieces to each bundle, sufficient for 10 half leather A4 bindings: price £80.00 plus £5.50 UK postage. £8.00 Europe. £18.00 USA

Medium sized offcuts, measuring 250x150mm. 10 medium sized pieces to each bundle, sufficient for 10 1/4 leather bindings A5: £65.00 plus £5.20 UK postage. £7.60 Europe. £17.00 USA.

Top quality grade 1 Nigerian goatskin costs in excess of £38.00 per sq ft, often you don't need a full skin, off cuts are a boon to the binder. Even lower quality Indian goatskin is £35.00 a sq ft.

Our offcuts work out at £15.00 per sq ft, that's £23.00 a sq ft cheaper than comparable whole skins, this is only because they are off cuts. That makes this offer much more than a bargain!

I include some pictures of the bundles, showing the mixed colours, the red, the blue and the black, it may be possible to get other colours, just email me for details.

Unfortunately, I can't get large quantities of these off cuts, they are they the by-product of a small tannery in Hertfordshire, England, home to some of the finest leather tanneries in the world. I get a small quantity of this leather every month.
