A soft economy full grain leather with a heavy grain printed texture and the additional benefits of water resistant properties, this hide is ideal for making footwear and small leather goods. Pittards leather hides are sold as sides where the leather hide is split in half down the backbone; this product has a thickness of 1.2-1.4mm and an average area of 18-24 square feet. Being a natural product, the leather will have some marks, natural defects and small holes. Our hides are graded to reflect the occurrence of natural blemishes. Pittards Economy leathers are ideally suited for cutting patterns with small panels due to a higher number of imperfections on the surface.

It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure the leather is right for the job before cutting. Skins cannot be returned once they have been cut.
The reproduction of colours is as accurate as photographic and publishing processes will allow. Colours shown on your screen may not be a true indication of shade. If in doubt, please ask for a cutting.
Please note that colour fastness varies between colours and leathers. It is advisable to test the level of colour fastness of the leather you are intending to use in order to ensure it is suitable for its end use as Pittards cannot accept any liability for colour transfer onto other materials.
Made by Pittards
Pittards is unique in that it makes its collections in-house from start to finish. Our made in the UK leathergoods are designed and made at the same Somerset HQ that makes the leather. Our glove collections are made in Ethiopia, where we first make the leather, before cutting and stitching the gloves in our own facilities in Addis Ababalearn more –
