Ugly Leather Bundle - 50 ft
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...)

$.60 cents a foot you can’t go wrong.

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.
10/10 Ugly but 10/10 Would Recommend

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!).
Waste of money.

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.
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.

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
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!
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.
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.
Only a,few ugly ones

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