Veg tan Goatskin needed

Post by Templar Knight »

Trying to find some goat skin that has only been veg dyed, I looked on Le prevo (sp). Bowstock and Tandy and cant find any.
Anybody got some, know a supplier ?
Cheers

Ask Karl Robinson, he sometimes sells skins. I know he uses goatskin.

I have also in the past used Leprevo, but on occasions when in a hurry have used this rather strange little shop, hidden down an alleyway, in the cellar under an old office block in Liverpool, run by an even stranger old lady (don't know if she mail orders though, but you could try):

Allways got mine from LePrevo, but it could be a stock thing.

You could try Moroco?

Tandy have had it in the past.

Not specificaly listed as Veg-tan - the chap says it is tanned by the supplier in africa - but it is.

Natural veg-tan goat, 1.5mm, sizes 4 to 8 ft².
Nice and soft to handle. Some faults but not bad.
Half price! @ £1.25 per ft²

Phone 'em first. They often sell out of the Special Offer stuff very quickly.
