Catskill Goat Leather
Our leathers are tanned with a traditional vegetable tanning method using chestnut extract and are drum-dyed using aniline dyes giving rich and earthy colors. These hides are all naked, natural grained leathers with no embossing or corrections. Goatskin has an unusual grain reminiscent of old world beauty and craft. When seen next to more standard cowhide, its appearance is striking. Add to that its depth of texture, natural vegetable tanned firmness, and the rich earthy colors and you have an unusually beautiful leather that works well for wallets, handbags, purses and more. It tools well, burnishes nicely and provides deep character. Our Catskill leathers are split to 4 oz./1.6 mm weight.
