Shark Crust Strips
Shark is just about one of the most highly sought-after exotic leathers around, and the demand for products made from this leather is higher than a kite! Now, with our Shark Crust Strips, you can make all sorts of small, personal leather goods in ANY color and finish combo you can think of! If you think the demand for the standard black and brown shark skin products is ridiculous, then just wait until you introduce your unique, custom colored shark skin goodies to your market! Minds will be blown, so prepare yourself for tailored requests and stock up on these extremely affordable and customizable skins, as well as your favorite leather dyes, colors, and finishes!
These strips are irregularly shaped, and sizes will vary wildly. Widths can range roughly 2” to 3" at one end, graduating upward towards 5” to 7" at the widest, then tapering back down to approximately 1". Lengths will be anywhere between 36” to 50”, give or take. Overall, averaging around 1-3/4 sf. total. But again, the sizes vary, and no two strips are the same. ALL will work gloriously for wallets, card cases, watchbands, and other small personal leather goods. You can even make spliced or pieced laminated belts! Great for use with our 6-Piece Designer Buckle Sets!
FYI: Crust Leather is leather that has been tanned (usually chrome tanned) but left completely unfinished, a blank canvas. These crusts have not only been chrome tanned, they’ve also been tumbled to achieve a soft, supple hand that would be suitable for just about any project!
