Baroda Buffalo Sides
 
  • Sold By: Per Square Foot
  • Average Side Size: 10 to 15 sqft
  • Thickness (approx.): 4oz (1.6mm)
  • Great for: Wallets, bags, belts, and other personal leather goods

These are beautiful, aged-whiskey colored buffalo sides with a slight pull-up, that have been gloriously plated and finished in such a way that allows them to be buffed or burnished to a rich patina. Baroda Buffalo Sides are a joy to work with and the natural characteristics only add to the appeal and enhances the authenticity of this type of leather. These small sides run anywhere from 10 to 15 sqft and have pretty good length. At right around 4 oz. with a slightly firm hand and smooth, almost waxy feel, this leather is perfect for wallet/clutch backs, minimalist wallets, and other personal leather goods, as well as firmer bags, accessories, and even laminated belts!

Hit or miss quality

I've order this leather twice. I was very impressed with the first sample. It was surprisingly clean and uniform for the price point. I would rate that one as a 5. The second piece was not quite as nice. I'd rate it as a 3. There were several holes through and multiple areas where the color was splotchy. Its still usable just make sure you pad your order about 20%ish so you have plenty of space to work around the bad spots.

Waste of money

Extremely disappointed bought 4 square as a quick test for a small bag. I'll be lucky to use 2 square at most More like 1 1/2 there is damage in a few places two of the 3 to 4 inch scratches are so deep its almost broken to the other side. $4 a square is a nice price but when you cant use half its garbage.

Will buy again for sure

Ordered this when it first came in stock, it was on sale. Over all, I loved it. Some areas were darker and lighter, some were smooth or a bit grainy. I was able to use the whole piece for various projects and the overall look of everything was nice. Made wallets, a purse and matching clutch, and several watch bands. Thinking about having some more skived down for hats and more wallets.

Great

Love this stuff, I used it for many projects, it's not perfect but that is part of it's charm , to me leather is a natural product so therefore not perfect

Rich, supple, lots of variation in grain (fat wrinkles/creases).

Outstanding value for the price. I bought a whole side, figuring the more negative reviews were for scraps and seconds. The side I received was very nice, supple, a few dings and a lot of variation in grain (which I love) - but no significant defects, at least not that I couldn't work around. Thanks to the SLC crew!
