Firm calf leather piece 5sf approximately 1.5mm with textured pebble grain (Scotch Grain) surface, ideal for bag making, pouches and small leather goods.
Usually available in brown shades, sometimes tan
Pebble Grain or Scotch Grain leather was developed in Scotland. Old Scots pioneered the texturing process with the barley from old whiskey barrels that would shrink up the leather to create the signature pitted rhino-like appearance. Nowadays the pattern is generally embossed over an older calfskin. This hardy finish makes Scotch Grain more weather resistant than other leathers and makes the leather stronger.
Note - bear this in mind for making up it is slightly tougher to cut and punch than the standard firm calf leathers.
