Re: [BKARTS] Low cost leathers???


Being VERY inexperience with leather, I wouldn't take the risk of dying myself. Color consistency is an absolute must.. and well.. I'd rather leave that to some people that know what they are doing!

Siegel doesn't have a huge variety of bookbinding leathers, but what they do
have is good quality.

As for myself, I buy their tooling kips or natural calf and goatskin and dye
it myself. That way, I am assured of the color I want.
