Specifications

Now includes a piece of veg tan leather large enough for a wallet back!


Springfield Leather just bought another incredibly large bunch of really nice leather...but it was contingent upon us taking some other leather that was somewhat less than really nice.... Actually, it's not that bad, because most of it is pretty much ok, and some of it is quite good, but it's just the perfectly wrong leather for many things.


Most of it is finished splits, which is not a bad thing, but when it's stiff, 4 oz., or 5 or 6 oz., and the wrong color, then things get a bit sketchy when trying to sell it. Some of it is actually fine leather, but it's got a weird print on it. Some of it is as stiff as a board and a lousy color with no print. Some has some finish issues (cracking and such). Some is 2 oz., and ok. some is 5 oz. and ok. Some are just strange colors. Some are normal colors. Some are 3-4-5 sq. ft. pieces, some are cow sides and bends and double butts.


From my point of view, it's just the fact that most of it is pretty firm, and "off colored" tha(more...)

Incredible for the money

I was extremely shocked by how much leather came in this bundle. I got half a cow of chrome tan and on top of that over 10 large pieces of various beautiful browns and blacks. While there were a couple of duds, it doesn’t matter because this was a great deal overall.

Only a,few ugly ones

Good variety. Some pieces will sit around a while, but most are quite useable. Good value

Disappointed, but still got some usable pieces

Disappointing bundle of leather. I was unable to determine how it measured 50 feet. The largest piece which would have been nice has green permanent marker circles which basically renders it unusable but for the smallest of projects. Many of the pieces are unusual colors and textures which is ok. One of the largest pieces is a gold, very thin piece with star shaped holes in it.

Get this and get creative

So I took a chance considering my projects are generally "custom" one of a kind stuff for myself and friends anyway. I was very happy with most of what I have. Some of it looked like what was left after doing a project, others I could see the "ugly" but then that is my kind of ugly. Two pieces were what I would call "scrap" but big enough to find some use for. There was however this golden yellow piece that feels more like vinyl (it's leather) I have no idea what to do with. The piece that is going to require some thought to use looks like car seat upholstery. It's not anything near what I would normally project with but I am sure I can find a use for it.

Perfect practice pieces

Another leather newbie here. I got this to practice and am delighted! I have no idea what some of it is (what is the white piece that is slightly stretchy and feels like butter?!) And I think a lizard or fish skin is in there. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and what I got in my bundle will make marginally skillful gifts for anyone I can talk into taking them for the next year. 👍 I tried to put 5 stars but the site wouldn't let me click that 5th star!

Not great

This last bundle was no way 50 sgaure ft. Usually I am really pleased with these bundles, but not this one. Will order again when they get new bundles in

This is a great buy!

I bought a bundle and have made two types and used the rest declining and small crafts. I am going to order another bundle.

Waste of money.

John - | 5/5/2021 11:29 pm

Bought (2) bundles - was very excited when I was notified they were delivered. Opening first bundle - first thought - hmm, not what I was expecting, but I'll go with it. Opened second bundle - hmm, why did they send me the same bundle twice? And some of the pieces I can't use because of pen markings on them. Won't be doing this again. Think it was a waste of money.

10/10 Ugly but 10/10 Would Recommend

Sara - | 2/26/2021 9:02 am

I ordered one of these not knowing what to expect and the name is no joke--some of this stuff is ugly! One piece is basketball leather, one piece looked like the pink dye didn't take completely, and one piece was this weird blue thing that looked like someone took a pair of scissors to one side and just snipped little triangles or something into one side so it feels almost like fringe. Ultimately, though, I loved and have a plan for almost everything (except the basketball stuff so far). I'd think this would be an ideal bundle for prototyping new patterns or finding unusual leathers for unique, one-off pieces. Definitely recommend and I will definitely buy again (once I'm done with this one anyway!).

$.60 cents a foot you can’t go wrong.

Ben - | 1/19/2021 5:13 pm

I’m really happy with the leather I received. I got a variety and it will be great for crafts. There are several decent pieces of leather that are black and brown I intend to make bags with. There are some soft suede type that should work for lining. There is even a lizard. I will buy this bundle again.

Best bargain from the BEST Leather Company.

Vincent| 1/4/2021 7:02 pm

I got twice what I thought I would, with a little bit of imagination every piece will be used for some kind of project. Thank You, Springfield Leather Your whole team is very helpful!

Great value, plenty of usable leather! Fun weird stuff too!

Just got my big tube of leather today and I'm very pleased. Multiple large pieces, mostly garment weight, some suede in nice colors, some very large pieces of goatskin and deerskin (I think), and a nice tasteful floral metallic print that will make beautiful journal covers. There is a large ~2 oz veg tan cowhide with an alligator imprint (slightly weird but cool), and a somewhat ugly piece of stamped shiny black "patent" leather. The weirdest in the lot is a whole lizard skin about 9" x 6". Don't know what I will do with it, but I know there is something I can make. Definitely a good value for a newbie or experienced leather crafter. I can already see bags, backpacks, hats, wallets. And something tiny for lizard lovers.

Fashion Bag Material!

Christina| 11/27/2020 11:02 pm

Wow!!! impressed by the size of useable material! I'll more than likely get a bag and matching wallet out of each piece. Great variety of bold colors in my bunch.

Thank you sir, may I have another

My 3rd or 4th Ugly Bundle since the pandemic and Every single one was worth the money +. Sure there's some really unusual bits(lizard bellies for example which I LOVE) but most of what shows up is just odd lot leather which is beautiful and 100% useful. Some of the more unusual prints I will make purses knowing that some women will love what I made because it suits her style. Other pieces I use when picking leather with customers for custom work because they don't know it's supposed to be ugly.

Yep ugly is right, but in the eye of this beholder...

Derilyn - | 10/9/2020 2:16 pm

Almost every piece is truly ugly including one piece so thin you can almost see thru it (but pretty gray color, this piece will be used to line wallets with) one piece of ostrich that looks like leather face sent his mask included with eye holes and nose hole, I am thinking Halloween mask. There are a few good sized really nice pieces that are large enough for totes yea! I will definitely find a way to use all of this, and will probably order this again.

Definitely not ugly!!

Ashley - | 8/30/2020 7:48 pm

I am blown away by this bundle!! I am BRAND new to leather and leather making things. This was literally the perfect bundle to get a feel for the different options out there while not spending a whole lot of money. 90% of these were beautiful! I don't even know what is ugly about them. There were two little pieces I was totally averted by BUT my daughter was in love with them and promptly took them to use in her own crafts, so I will definitely be back.

Great Bargain

AJ| 5/13/2020 4:15 pm

I bought this even after seeing the junk review. I'll take this deal anyday. GREAT VALUE FOR THE MONEY. Yes there is one so so piece but I'll find something for it. The rest is great.

Far from ugly

Dominic| 4/4/2020 9:41 pm

I got a great selection only piece of all that wasn't really my taste or preference but the rest A+++++.. Alot of leather for an great price

Quality goods from a quality company.

Sara| 3/21/2020 10:56 am

Wow! I have bought several other bundle types, but was skeptical of this due to the description. I am a professional theatrical costume and props maker, and can find uses for just about every material under the sun. So I decided to go for it, expecting to have to get very creative. I was wrong. All I recieved were huge pieces of good stuff! Soft, thick, neutrals and a few small bits (a ready to go book cover and a partial lizzard skin). I honestly liked the leather a lot more than the regular leather bundle I got previously. Might have been a fluke, but I will be purchasing again when I run out.

5 X STILL RECOMMEND IT

Sheila| 2/24/2020 4:02 am

Have bought this 5 times now and got 2 very good, 1 good, 1 OK and 1 didn't quite make it up to these other ones. But to be fair the others were especially nice so I think I started to expect more than I really should every time. I was pretty lucky 4 times in a row, guess I got a bit greedy. Lol. Anyway I still recommend this bundle and for groups it couldn't be better!!! A little something for everyone's taste...or lack thereof.

Perfect for complete beginners

Jeffrey| 12/21/2019 1:40 am

As someone just starting out on leathercraft, I know I'm going to mess up a bunch of material learning from basic mistakes. This deal is really, really good for someone in my situation. It's inexpensive, it has a variety of weights and finishes to experience, and there's a ton of it. I got only one piece with unusable material (stiff belly cut), but having this much practice material for such a low cost means a better starting set of tools.

Worth it

Dwight| 10/7/2019 7:01 pm

Very surprised by this leather. There are some pieces we will have a hard time finding a use for but the others are well worth the price and above. There was some very nice pieces in this bundle including some embossed leather. Some awesome liner pieces also. Very glad we bought it and we will buy again! They are right though, some of these pieces you need an imagination for.

Ugly is in the eye of the beholder.

Bev.| 10/7/2019 12:37 pm

I only ordered one box and I so wish I had ordered more! Much larger pieces than I expected. This is just what I have been searching for to make my line of earrings and pins. Perfect! I plan to have a beginners class in creating with leather and this gives me a start for them to make small projects and it will keep cost down. Definately will order more!

creative mix

raine| 6/6/2019 6:33 pm

Have received 2 special bundles. Wonderful variety. I am a designer so I love a random mix of goods...it speaks to me...odd pieces lead to new creativity.

The good outshines the bad every time.

Richard W.| 5/16/2019 2:47 am

If some of this was made back in the old west they would have taken the maker out back and just shot him. 2 pieces I am using for test fits and cuts but the good pieces they throw in are worth every penny. For the money the good will always out way the bad in this bundle. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and imagination rules with this lot. I see me using this as filler bundles a lot.
