  1. Hello, live been looking into making a proper pair of above the elbow 1880s evening gloves— which are consistently described as being kidskin. The issue is that the only kidskin I can find is chrome tan, which will not work for a variety of reasons (lack of stretch, lack of dye ability, horrible sensory to touch, ethical objections on my part, etc). Tawed seems to have been in some degree of use as well, going by trade journals and descriptions, but veg tan seems much easier to find and to work with. I’ve not been able to find either, however, and was wondering if anyone had ideas of where I might find some.
