[BKARTS] grained pigskin etc.



http://www.cromwellgroup.com/

Saderra is their grained pigskin, and is likely to be the one Tandy
carried.

They also have over 100 grain patterns of bonded leather for the cheaper
than cheap jobs that don't require the durability of genuine leather. For
the uninitiated, bonded leather is made with "real" leather--it uses the
shavings from the skiving machine, which are tanned like real leather and
bonded in latex or similar flexible film. It comes on a roll, available in
many thicknesses. Remember that latex is subject to decomposition over
time.
