Ugly Leather Bundle - 50 ft

SKU: 892-420
Price $39.00
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...)
Now includes a piece of veg tan leather large enough for a wallet back! For some reason SLC has a tendency to accumulate leathers that are just hard to deal with.... (who’d a thunk) it can be anything from a less than wonderful color, to a fantastic piece with a couple of holes. Or ink marks. or a stain. or a funny shaped piece. or a one of a kind item that’s completely wonderful with no issues at all. and more than likely there’s going to be a piece of something that’s falls into someone’s idea of UGLY!!! Bottom line is this: The tremendous variety in leather color and type is hard to put into words. It's not that bad, because most of it is pretty much ok. The price is great, and we sell more of this bundle than any other bundle. Don’t expect five dollar a foot leather.....

The good outshines the bad every time.

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.

Great for the creative mind

I consider myself a newbie still only been working with leather for a little less than 2 years an still learning I had only been working with Veg leather so I saw this an thought it would be perfect for experimenting with other leathers an boy was I right I loved it so much ordered another yesterday (my Mothers Day present from my hubby) as far as being ugly well everyone has different taste an I love what I got yes some of the colors were off an had marks some stiff some soft an supple but to me it makes each piece unique an the sky is the limit some might end up as lace on other projects or inlays or maybe earrings or test pieces but all will be used

UGLY, but Wonderful at the same time...

Yep, it's UGLY. But it's all wonderful material, I got over 50Sq in my order, including one piece whomever tanned it should be shot to come up with it's pattern. LOL. Most of it is beautiful leather, just in the totally wrong color/pattern. But as I make patchwork items, it will work out excellent! GREAT value for the money.

Worth the price

I love the bundles because you never know what you’re gonna get! There was definitely some ugly leather in here. That being said while most of it wasn’t to my taste I was able to make some gifts for others who loved them. This stuff is also great if you’re working on modifying some patterns and you don’t want to use your good leather. I think it’s worth the gamble, I even bought another one.

Good buy

In my opinion this is a great value nice size pieces good quality and price

Youth group's dream bundle!!!

Sheila| 3/11/2019 8:34 pm

I was totally surprised at how good this bundle is. I expected much less. Mine is ALL good, useable stuff, (except for one piece that I hated.) But the kids went crazy over it!!! Go figure. Everyone is very happy and we have lots of leather to work and learn with. I recommend this (for youth groups especially) and I will buy it again.

A bunch of leather at a great price. Not a bad piece In the bundle.

Worth every penny!

Andrea| 2/15/2019 4:38 pm

Not ugly to me and in fact pieces I can use to add flare to my projects. I do understand that not every bundle may wind up as pretty as my first but I will order more because what I don't use, I will donate to my fellow veterans at my local v.a.

At this price it is what you make of it

I bought this product twice and will buy again at some point. This is not for the person looking for making a lot of one time of product but for someone who needs to experiment with different leathers. A beginner's excellent starting point or a scout or youth group low-cost bundle; As he says, creativity is the key.

Not worth it

JUNK!!! Don't waste your money. I bought this to prototype, didn't need high quality leather. Out of this I might have got 5-6sq ft of useable leather.

great value for the cost

5 star value for the money. I have bought this twice now. most of pieces are good. some have a flawed finish, most of piece is still usable (put flaw on bottom?) some have wrinkle/s. some are just dirty. and yes I have had a ugly one. most are usable for creative people, just like they advertise. I have gotten it twice and will do it again when I need to. if you are still scared go with the 40sf bundle for $48.00 .
