Italian Veg Double Shoulders

Type: Cow
Tannage: Veg Tanned
Average Size: 8-13 sqft 

Thickness: 3-4oz (1.2mm to 1.6mm)

Hand: Medium Firm
Sold By: Square Feet

Strikingly beautiful Italian veg tanned double shoulders in 3 Super good colors. Well, 2 super good colors and one kinda good color: Dark Purple, (almost black), Bordeaux, and Nunzia Brown. Almost all is in the 3 to 3 ¼ oz, although since they are double shoulders, there will be a few places that might hit 4 oz. This is very high end leather and was obtained only because a vendor that we are on very good terms with needed cash quite badly. The finish is the type that you can sort of “see into” and the visible grain just screams “quality”. It would make amazing journals, and pad folios and that sort of thing. But it would have been used for everything under the sun, from small leather goods and accessories to belts that would have been lined with heavier leather. Shoulders average 8-13 sq ft, and we’re willing to cut it. Some tannery in Italy probably charged 4.50 to 5.00 per foot to make it…. Stock quantity is good.

This is some of the smelliest leather that I have worked with, and not in a good way

Store it by itself and away from your other leather

It looks great but the odor is terrible to the point that I am apprehensive about using it for a client's order. If I can figure out a way to seal the smell then it won't be an issue. I have to keep it out in the garage closet.

Love it

This leather is great to work with no complaints at all and the edges burnish beautifully.

Great value.

Ordered three sides. Amazing value, very happy with the packing and freight. Smells fine to me though?

smelly but well priced

Great deal, but has very strong musty odor

Wow! No odors. Beautiful. A steal.

WOW! This leather was a STEAL. I bought the blue, and came back for the rest. My piece had no offensive odor at all. Not even a little. Not sure what kind of bag I'll make from this. Probably something tailored, because of the glossy coating on it. Total steal.

Better than you think if you don’t need to use right away.

My order did have a very strong odor. I placed it in my rack and thought I had made a mistake. Let it set for couple of weeks and smell went away. Great material to work with just need to be a little patient if you get some that has an odor.

So I had given this 3 stars due to the odor it had. After letting it air out for a bit in finally had a project that it was perfect for. I've mad several tote bags out of it in different colors and it is some of the best leather at this price that I have ever worked with. No fear of any residual odor as I lined the bags with bontex and soft veg tan. Get yourself some to play with.

LOVE this leather.

The smell on this leather is strong, but it reminds me of walking into a high end leather shop. I've bought about 25 sq. ft. of the purple, and absolutely love it. I've made some totes, and I'm working on the Creative Awl roll top backpack out of it as well. This is beautiful stuff, and I hope all these positive reviews don't cause it to sell out too fast :/ I've gotten the dark purple, Celeste blue, and Nunzia brown, and that is my order of preference as well. Burnishes wonderfully.
