Mesquite Brown Oil Tan



This leather has a nice, mellow tan color with a matte finish and smooth texture. It has a medium firm hand with little stretch and less wax than some of our other stock oil tans, so it doesn’t have as much flex or pull-up, which allows you to glue/cement it quite nicely! This is sure to enable you to create some fine travel cases, totes, and even sturdy chaps!

Great leather

I used this leather to make a duffel bag. When I ordered the side I was not sure if I would be happy with the flex of the leather. After working with the leather and completing the project I was extremely happy with the leather. Matter of fact, I am ordering more and will keep it in my shop. The duffel bag turn out great and this leather is perfect for the project.

Absolutely love it!

This is one of my best sellers. It skives down really well and holds its strength. The color is less of a redish and more yellow tones than what I'm seeing on the display photos. Although, if you feel like the color is lighter than the last order, it's probably just because its lost some moisture and easily goes back to original with a bit of conditioner. I always keep this one on hand! It's the perfect saddle tan matcher.

Not as warm-toned as photo portrays but beautiful, none-the-less!

I have ordered this leather multiple times because it works great for tote bags and is a nice color. HOWEVER, the picture is a bit misleading. It is not as warm/coppery as the photo portrays. I would recommend 'Ranch hand' if you're looking for a coppery look such as this.

Not quite mesquite...

The color was different when it arrived, however it was a lovely brown with modest pull up that worked out well for an order. Now I have more orders of the same color and am concerned the colors wont be the same when I re-order. Fingers crossed! Delivery was very fast.

Phenomenal leather!

My word! I cant describe the beauty of this hide! Just beautiful finish and great weight even throughout my side.

Totes the best leather

This was the first leather I ordered from SLC, and I have ordered it almost exclusively since. It is a WONDERFUL leather that, as stated in the description, really has improved my products. I highly recommend this leather. As someone who burnishes every single edge of every project, my only complaint is that this leather doesn’t burnish very well. BUT, I still order it because honestly, it doesn’t need to be burnished. It’s beautiful.
