This European chèvre (or goatskin) is some of the most vibrant and beautiful leather that we could find. The leather is fully aniline dyed so the natural grain of the goat hide is visible. Available in 94 colours, each with the dye struck through the leather. In addition to the colour being beautiful and consistent, the hides themselves have very (if any) few marks or blemishes. Being both chrome and vegetable tanned, its very firm for how thin it is and very pleasant to work with. This leather has very little stretch to it so it is perfect for wallet interiors, other small projects as well as linings. The flesh side of the hide is very smooth and glues nicely.
The finish on these hides is quite glossy but can be brought down to a luster by using rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth. This process will not damage the strength or quality of the leather in any way.
