We are please to offer our Economy Grade Vegetable Tan Leather Single Shoulder. Our Single Shoulders are cut from C/D Grade cowhides imported from South America. Because this leather is c/d grade you can expect imperfections. You are likely going to have to work around bug bites, scar, or range marks. Our single shoulders are six to seven ounce and are between four and six square foot in surface area.
The color may vary from monitor to monitor, but you can expect your leather to arrive with a pale honey color. This leather takes water and it dyes beautifully, or you can let it develop its natural patina as it ages. The grain on this leather has a semi firm hand that tools, carves, embosses, and stamps just fine.
Ideal for a whole range of finished leather goods such as gun holsters, knife sheaths, travel bags, cigar rolls, journals, wallets, saddle bags the only limit is your creativity. The shoulder of the cow is a part of the hide that is soft and pliable because the grain is less dense. When deciding what you are going to please keep in mind that the shoulder and belly of a cow yields softer leather. If your project requires a dense tight grain you will want to consider the side of the cow which is where you will find that dense grain.
