    English Vegetable Tanned Hoodmaking Cowhide -- Imported from UK.

    Note: We sell 2 square foot pieces here ($34.95) that have been cut from the heart of each hide so the hoodmaker can try the leather to see if it meets their expectations. The price is a little more since we cut from the center. We understand this piece is about the right size for making 12-14 hoods. See the list above for the hand-picked sizes we have prepared to go out the door.

    This leather has a good body to it -- not too stiff and not too limp. It is very smooth on the outside and very even and smooth on the flesh side with the proper density for sewing. This leather holds a stitch well. It currently sells for $13.95 per square foot when purchasing half or full hide.

    Thickness: This leather is between 3.5 -- 3.75 oz / 1.4 to 1.5 mm. There is not much difference in thickness across the hide.

    See available sizes above.

    Note: We do not accept returns on leather that has been cut.

    Note: Look for our new product FE5201 The Complete Hoodmaker's Tool Kit which includes this item along with many others for the beginning hoodmaker, which will save up to $60.00 in costs when getting set up.



    Cobblers use this very same English Kip Leather for shoes and boots. We will sell to those making shoes and boots. This is also a good leather for a pigeon harness.
