Below you can see questions that other customers have asked about this product. Do you have a question of your own? Then feel free to ask us using the button below. You decide whether your question may be published.

In general, the pre-skived leather can be processed without additional leather-paring. For the best end result, you can thin out the edges and the joints a little bit with the help of a leather-paring knife. However, if you do that, I would recommend to work slowly to not take too much off and risk cutting through the leather.
Our Capra line leathers are not vegetable-tanned, they are dyed using acrylics. If you are looking for vegetable-tanned leather, we can offer our Oase line leathers ( https://schmedt.com/art/3520-011 ).
