Beginners Corner

This section is to provide the beginners in the leather craft some idea of what they might need to start the craft. The idea is to provide the user some guidance on what the would like to do. In the leather craft there are multiple disciplines, but can be grouped into two basic groups. Stiffer vegetable type leathers and soft type leathers.

Vegetable Type Leathers
These are generally thicker and stiffer type leather. Vegetable tan comes in colors and natural. The natural would generally be died or threaded to protect the leather. The thickness can vary from as little as 1 mm to as thick as 5 mm. Vegetable tan can be used for most leather applications and have some tools that would only be used with vegetable tan. This would be for example slickers and belt cutters etc.

Soft Leather
The soft leathers are thinner and the would typically be dies already. The leather can be used for bags, wallets etc. The leather is also used for upholstery of furniture and vehicle interiors.

Most tools in the shop can be used for both vegetable tan and soft leather. The user should consider the thickness when choosing items like rivets etc.

It is important to note that the collection or guideline in this section is only a guideline. It is the customers decision to add the items to their cart. The purpose is to try and assist beginners with some idea of what they might need.
