We source our vegetable-tanned shoulders from some of the world's finest tanneries. A double shoulder cut is ideal for waist belts and straps, as the roughly rectangular shape means there is little wastage, and at typically 1150mm to 1400mm wide, will cover a range of belt lengths. Also great for general leathercraft projects, they are smaller and more economical than sides or full hides of leather. Veg-tanned leather can be wet moulded, embossed, and hand sewn using traditional saddle-stitching techniques. We source all of our Italian veg-tanned leathers from tanneries that are ISO 14001:2015 certified for Environmental Management and/or have Silver Awards from the Leather Working Group.
