I saw nothing about pricing on your website. I see that you have a price list available for asking via email, but I think you'd be hard pressed to get many takers unless you post prices on your site as well as shipping costs, just as a matter of convenience. All online companies that I deal with do this. Of course, just my opinion.  Good luck with your new company.

Dear Tony,

Thank You for Your opinion.

We are a tannery, not an online shop that is why we do not have our prices/shipping costs on our web-site (in the future we are planning to open up an online store). In general tanneries on their main web-sites do not put their prices, however we have nothing to hide that is why below I am attaching our price list. Regarding the shipping costs, they are greatly dependent on ordered quantities and at this moment I am able to provide the price for transportation only after receiving a specific request.

Indeed that is true where we are in Europe..I deal with French tanneries directly ( mainly for lambskin, sheepskin, goatskin etc ) ..I use less calfskin and cow, buffalo etc..but will be reading with interest your prices * :) ..The French tanneries do not normally give prices on their sites, one has to email them for a price list, ( and usually one has to provide a business registration number to receive a price list ) as TanneryLEJA says..

This prevents the "general public" ( our customers ), knowing the "raw materials" prices, many "customers" forget that they are paying for materials and expertise, especially expertise..( I know the prices that some tanneries pay for the skins that they tan, when we buy from them, we are also paying for their expertise )..and also giving prices out only in email to businesses, means that the tanneries do not waste their time with people wanting just one or two square feet.

For small amounts, most if not all European tanneries refer people ( public or business, artisans ) to their "resellers"..

*The minimum quantities for dyeing are interesting :)

edit..having read the price list..worth mentioning for non metric nations..

1 (sq meter) / (sq foot) = 10.7639104 sq feet
Ounces to mm or vice versa..Google / Bing / DDG it..

My experience dealing with tanneries, wholesalers and curriers in the UK echoes Mike's exactly. There can be a huge range of reasons why industrial suppliers don't make their prices public knowledge and that's fairly common in many other industries too. Try finding a steelmill's price list for instance.

@TanneryLEJA Your leathers look great and prices quite reasonable. I might be in contact directly with you. Do you offer an English "bridle" (heavily compressed and greased) finish?

Thank You all for Your feedback.

I am attaching a new Price List, updated with ounces and sqft and minimum order for colour. Also I rearranged it a little bit so hopefully it is easier to read.

For the rest, I will get back to You tomorrow :)

I see....sorry for the confusion. 

Edit: Just looked over your price list and it looks very competitive. Approximately how much would it be to ship, for instance, a double shoulder to the U.S., or for whatever your minimum order might be.

Thanks for the kind note.

No problem, I saw it as a very smiley face. What happened was I converted a spreadsheet to a JPG, and when posted it appeared very large, so I replaced it with a somewhat smaller image to make sure it was not too obnoxious.

@Matt S Unfortunately, we do not have in our range bridle leather. However if You could send us a sample of required leather/finish, we would like to try to make it for You.

@TonyRV2 Minimum order quantity is 1 piece. Double shoulder (size around 0,8 to 1 sqm | 9 to 11 sqft) - price 30,5 to 33 Euro per sqm | 2,83 to 3,06 Euro per sqft

It would roughly cost to ship to US as following:

- 1 double shoulder - 34 Euro, 2 double shoulders - 48 Euro, 3 double shoulders 61 Euro - every extra shoulder is 13 Euro extra to shipment (we can have around 6-7 double shoulders in one package). If You would be interested we can discuss more details via email.

Would it be possible to split the leather to a certain thickness? Say for a finished shoulder?
