Goatskin Leather Off Cuts
I have been able to get supplies of grade 1 Nigerian goatskin in bundles of single colours and different
This is top quality grade 1 Nigerian goat skin, fully vegetable tanned, simply the best you can get, no joke
this is the best quality Nigerian goat skin 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 leather 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 goat skin 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 goat skin 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 leather 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.
