These hides have a mild  finish on top that might require extra preparation if you want to dye them, it is advisable to thoroughly deglaze/ strip the leather first in preparation for your dyes. When using water based dyes a much better penetration and coverage/uniformness is achieved if leathers are slightly wet before dyeing. This is true of most vegetable tanned hides, not just this one. If using oil/alcohol dyes penetration is usually far greater.

All prices include VAT.

We strive to have the pictures as close to the real colour as possible, some differences may occur due to lighting conditions and monitor settings.
