This is TOPGRAIN 3 to 3.5 ounce deerskin leather - often called Buckskin as well. It has a smooth side (skin side) and a rough side (suede side).
We sell deerskin leather by the full hide. The full hides vary in size from about 4 square feet to 12 square feet. The average size is 10-12 square feet. Each hide is marked with its size. We can usually select either small, medium, or large hides according to your wishes. Expect to pay between US$50.00 and US$150.00 per hide. We will not, however, cut hides to measure or select just the best hides. No returns on cut hide.
We use these skins to make our bags and laces and consequently stock a good quality craft grade skin. The skins are not flawless, but are not junk either. Expect some holes and/or flaws. If you can work around these, this skin is for you. If not, stick to a true garment grade.
