Hello everyone! I am new to the forum and I apologize in advance if this is not the correct place to post this. I am looking for a few pieces of Horween Dublin Pull Up Veg Tanned Leather in the "Natural" color. I used to buy the 2 sq. ft. (12" x 24") pieces from Rocky Mountain Leather Supply but they are sold out and don't know when or if they are going to be getting any more. I have also ordered the Horween Dublin Brown Nut and English Tan from Buckle Guy but they also do not have the Horween Dublin in Natural. Does anyone know where I can purchase some in 3-4 oz. and 6 oz? I'm not interested in seconds at all, I want the best grade possible. Thanks a lot and hopefully someone can help me! Tom
stormcrow posted a topic in Purses, Wallets, Belts and Miscellaneous Pocket ItemsI received my first Horween leather yesterday from A A Crack so I had to quickly try it out. I am very impressed with the quality and with how easy it was to work with. Almost all of my previous work has been done with veg tan that I have dyed myself so it was a refreshing change to just pick up some leather cut it out and stitch. I’m worried though that I already thinking I need more Any tips on finishing horween does your final product need any conditioning etc? Normally I would finish my other veg tan products with resoline or carnauba cream or just some leather conditioner such as sedgwicks.
Plumer35 posted a topic in Purses, Wallets, Belts and Miscellaneous Pocket ItemsHello Everyone, I am very new both here and to leatherworking. I was tasked with making a leather tote bag for my sister for christmas. It was the only thing she requested so I felt obligated to take a crack at my first bag. I used: 5oz Dublin Horween Chromexcel 8oz Buffalo for the straps Copper rivets 1mm Cigar Tiger thread all stitches hand punched and saddle stitched There was quite the learning curve with the designing and assembly of this bag, I already know of a few things (mostly surrounding order of operatioins) that I will do different. Any advise is welcome since I hope to improve to the level of the things I see here! Edit: These are the only pictures I have from the build process, I have asked my sister for some pictures of it after a few weeks of use but nothing yet.
