French Split Goatskin

    SKU: FrenchSplit


    $65.25 to $125.63



    These pure vegetable tanned and aniline dyed goatskins are wonderful to work with since they have been pre split to a very thin substance, greatly reducing ones labor in hand paring.  They are perfect for inlays and onlays as well as other applications where fully split skins are desired. They are quite soft, with a natural uniform grain with some wandering variations, and are suitable for blind and gold hand tooling.

    Made in France by the same tannery producing our Chagreen skins and stocked in a range of 12 colors all in 1st and 2nd quality grades.

    Skins are graded between 1st and 2nd quality skins at the tannery in France.  Grading is based on the quality and the grain and surface blemishes.  In this specific product line there is little difference between 1st and 2nd quality skins, and also little difference in price.  They are quite consistent and very usable skins.
