Hides from animals go through a tanning process to condition the hide ready for processing into folders. Depending on the finish desired, the hide may be waxed, rolled, split, shaved and dyed. Suedes and nubucks are finished by raising the nap of the leather by rolling with a rough surface.
We receive the whole hide and cut it into rectangular panels to the size of folder requested. Each hide may produce enough leather for up to six folders. A folder can be made from the hide alone, or can cover a greyboard to form a turned-edge which can be stitched if required.The internal of the folder can be a different material.
