  1. Looking for Latigo and 2 Prong Rim Settings

    Does anyone have any recommendation of where I can find the 2 prong rim settings? These are what I am looking for, in 20ss, 30ss, and 40ss...
  2. Looking for Latigo and 2 Prong Rim Settings

    That is their California Latigo which I was looking to get after their recommendation. I am hoping the sample I got is either an anomaly or was mislabeled. Thank you again for your response, gives me hope that the 8-10 oz might be what I'm looking for.
  3. Looking for Latigo and 2 Prong Rim Settings

    Hi there! Thank you, I currently have a couple hides from them, latigo and lambskin. I have a lovely side of their Napa HS latigo in yellow, and I like their California Latigo in red. I purchased several sides from them on recommendation. I returned their Napa HS in black as it is not struck through. In speaking with them about what I am looking for, I was told their California Latigo in black was struck through. However, the sample of it I received is not. I am not a fan of their Soleta latigo, don't like the look or feel of it, it seems to be struck through but has a cheap almost plastic feel to me. I'm waiting to hear back about the California Latigo, perhaps the sample I received was mislabeled. Thanks for your reply!
  4. Hi all! Been a lurker here for a while, have absorbed a lot of information so far. I tried a search and am either not wording it properly or just didn't see where this has been answered, so I thought I'd start a thread and see if you folks can point me in the right direction. I am on the hunt for some quality 8-10oz black latigo that is struck through. I've ordered a couple different latigos and had to return them because they are not struck through. I just don't like the look of leather that has a grey center, and I don't have the time or patience to use edge kote/paint on everything I make. I have a few straps left of a couple sides of black latigo that I bought off some friends that is perfect. Unfortunately they don't remember where they got it. I know it exists I am just unsure where to find it, and after spending so much shipping back hides I decided to come on here and ask for recommendations. Not looking for a budget leather, am not shy about spending good money for good quality. Second question! I am looking for 20ss, 30ss, and 40ss sizes in the heavy duty 2 prong rim settings, both "silver" and "gold" tone. I need several gross of each color in each size and a steady supply. Regular rim settings, even extra long leg, don't give the security I need to set the Swarovski crystals I use in heavier latigo. I've been skiving down the leather just enough so that the legs are able to bend in but I would much prefer the heavy duty 2 prong rim sets. I can't seem to find the sizes I need. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
