Product Details


This is a great, lighter weight leather suitable for shooting bags, knife sheaths and similar projects where molding, dyeing and antiquing are useful. Recommended by T.C. Albert, who used our leather to make the fine shooting bag shown here! 3 to 4 ounces, approximately 1/16" thick. 20-22 SF.

About Vegetable Tanning

Tanning with chemicals (tannins) from tree bark dates back thousands of years and has been used in America from early settlement through the present day. Tannins are generally referred to as "vegetable products" and this tanning makes leather very flexible, less water-soluble and more resistant to bacteria, thus giving it longer life and many desirable qualities. Because of its ability to retain shape, vegetable tanned leather readily accepts guide marks for stitching, can be molded, tooled, incised and otherwise decorated, as well as lending itself to uniform dyeing.

See related items below for other types of this leather, and our permanent spirit-based leather dye to create the desired color.

Kent Stapleton (Lancaster County, PA) | December 18th, 2021
The leather (Veg Tanned, Strap Leather, 3 - 5 oz. - Whole Side) arrived today (12/16/2021). What a beautiful piece of leather. If a person could handle the leather personally, it is worth a lot more (per square foot) in a brick-and-mortar environment than the price that Crazy Crow is retailing it for on-line. I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful piece of Veg Tanned leather. The piece that I got is perfect for my bag making activity. I used my leather gauge to check the entire side in several places and it is a consistent, level, 3 oz. everywhere I checked. My need is more toward 3 oz. than 5 oz and this particular piece satisfies that need more than I had hoped. There are almost no blemishes/scars anywhere. That is unusual to not have at least several tick bite scars that sometimes make it difficult to position templates when cutting out possibles/shooting bag components. The hide is a consistent natural color throughout (which gives me more confidence that it will accept the dye evenly) and the leather is a beautiful soft and flexible feel to the touch everywhere. This is the second time I have bought this item from Crazy Crow. Also I had a couple of questions before I made the actual purchase and the young lady I worked with over the phone was very helpful and pleasant to interact with.
