Hermann Oak Drum-Dyed Leather has the superior quality we have come to expect from this tannery. In addition to struck-through color, the leather features a slightly embossed grain ensuring a professional, finished look. It is moldable and burnishable, and even toolable! (Although, you may have to play with the moisture content a little more than usual for tooling.) This means you can get the superb qualities of Hermann Oak leather without having to dye your project—in fact, since the color is struck-through, the leather will keep its color even if scratched.
A side is one side of a full hide, cut down the spine. This is pretty big territory, averaging 24 square feet, so consider a side if you’re planning on making larger or multiple projects—maybe even to sell for money! Before buying a side, you may want to buy some of the leather by the square foot to make sure you like it. If you do and you’re making projects on a larger scale, you can save some dollars by purchasing a side. This is a superb option for experienced crafters or the entrepreneur.
