On Order


SLC Oil Tan Side - Mesquite Brown. 5-6 oz. (2mm - 2.4mm) Sold by the square foot. We will cut. Sides average 17-20 sq ft.

If you feel like your designs have been going south (or hey, even if they’re swell!), the Mesquite Brown oil tan can give your projects a lift. The warm brown, matte finish and smooth texture add a suave touch to a design. This leather has a bit of stretch and a medium hand but a little less flex than some of our other stock oil tans. Mesquite Brown leather will also glue nicely! We’re imagining some fine travel cases, totes, or chaps made from this leather—what do you think? Embark on the possibilities!

Note: The dye lot on this leather has changed. It is very similar but the red tones will not be as prominent as previous batches.

This leather is sold by the square foot. Whatever quantity is chosen at checkout will be the square footage received. Example - order quantity 5, receive a 5 square foot piece.

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.
