    Wonderful quality, well packed! Thank you!

    nice and soft feel to the leather

    Très beau cuir, transaction parfaite

    Deceptive seller!! Sold damaged leather with 11" hole in the CENTER. The seller's photos did not show a GAINT hole in ANY images..tells me 'marks are considered a fine leather's characteristics.' Not when I can stick my leg through it! Gave me a break!! A slap in the face of your customer! After giving me the wrong return address she then refused to take it back because 'she doesn't take back sale items'. Also, total cut and paste for leather quality description.. Sold cheap bonded leather as 'high quality'.. I have never been able to scrape off the top layer of 'fine leather' .. Go somewhere else for your leather!

    Lovely soft leather, easy to work with for chair seat upholstery. Shipping to Canada was very quick. The seller is helpful and responsive. Note: my 1/2 hide came with a 2cm cut/hole quite far from any of the edges which made laying out and cutting my patterns a bit more complicated. My guess is the hole cannot be avoided in the process but having no previous experience with cowhide - I just wasn't expecting it.
