Since 1861, Hermann Oak has been tanning top-grain leather right here in Missouri. This St. Louis-based company prides itself on its slow and careful tanning process. A process that produces the finest top-grain stamping and tooling leather in the world. We are proud to be one of the largest distributors of Hermann Oak leather and to offer leather by the square foot. Buying Hermann Oak leather by the square foot is a great way to make smaller projects and yields while saving some dollars. Instead of buying an entire side, you just buy what you need! Unlike a pre-cut, the leather won’t be a perfect rectangle or circle—it might be oblong with some curvy edges or other fun shapes. However, if you don’t need a perfect shape, this is a cheaper option than pre-cuts and also offers more flexibility in size. Learn more about Hermann Oak and see additional buying options here.
