Our customers have been asking for a more economical line of calfskin. We will now be supplying a line, starting with 4 colors, of Bovine (calf) young and very fine grained from the German tannery Franz Hoffmann.
These skins are tanned by using a combination of vegetable and synthetic/minerals. They are purely aniline dyed without any pigmentation. The result is an exquisite hide, durable yet soft, easily pared or thinned and priced at an affordable level. The skins are valued for their use in in all types of gilding, from hand and machine to blind.
