Sides will tend to run from 18 to 24 square feet. Thickness can run from 4 to 8 oz. Since we split these from sides of various thicknesses, the splits will not always be uniform in thickness. Thickness will differ around the belly, armpits (leg pits) and neck. Usually the bulk of the useable area will be pretty uniform though.
Excellent quality vegetable tanned splits, mostly Hermann Oak but will include some import sides. Hermann Oak is running at capacity, and they have a lot of customers besides little ol’ us! So, to help us meet our demand for Hermann Oak leather, we’re buying it in full weight… and then splitting the sides ourselves on the very same splitter Hermann Oak used to use! (We bought it from them when they got a one!) So, we’ve got some heavy splits hanging around. This may or may not be a regular stock item, as it completely depends on availability.
In case you weren’t aware, veg splits can be wet molded and formed, stamped and tooled, wood burned and branded, dyed, finished, etc.! Can also be used as a stiffener for laminated belts, bags, wallets, and more!
