Buffalo Leather

  

 From Left to Right: 5 to 5.5 oz. Natural Buffalo Leather, Buffalo Leather Tannery Run:White 5 oz.

The buffalo leather is sold by the hide. Each hide is marked with its size.  The natural hides average between 18 square feet and 28 square feet or larger.  We can usually select either small, medium, or large hides according to your wishes.  We will not, however, cut hides to measure or select just the best hides.

These skins are full grain or top grain leather.  They are NOT just splits. The texture is rougher than deerskin or moosehide.  The skin also stretches less than deerskin. Colors range from a beige/cream to a milk chocolate brown depending on availability.

The tannery run skins are a mix of grades.  They are not flawless, but are not junk either.  Expect some holes and/or flaws.  If you can work around these, this skin is for you.  If not, stick to a true garment grade.

The 5 to 5.5 ounce skins are strong and therefore ideal for making moccasins or other crafts requiring a heavier leather.  Usually, the larger the skin the heavier it will be.  The 3 to 3.5 ounce skins are a garment-weight leather.
