Cordovan Shell

For any designer wanting to produce a high end luxury leathergood, then cordovan shell is the right pick for you.

The small hides measure approximately 2 square foot and available in 6 rich colours including:

Black Blue Burgundy Claret Green Whisky Tan

Olympia Panel Hide

Pittards Olympia is suitable for several purposes; Not only is it suitable for saddle making but it’s soft, supple and water resistant properties make it an ideal candidate for fashion trims such as aprons and jackets. The obvious print stands out and looks unique when used with other materials such as denim and canvas.

Tooling Shoulder

Tooling shoulder is the perfect article for embossing, dying, carving, shaping and its rectangular shape means minimal wastage. This natural full grain vegetable tanned leather has a super smooth grain which lends itself wonderfully to small leather goods including bags, knife sheaths, menu covers, straps and can also be incorporated into furniture such as leather table tops.
