notes from natasha
Slightly thicker than a typical lambskin. Lots of lovely squish, with a drapey hand. A masterful find.

Our leathers are sourced from top tanneries around the world including, Italy, France, Germany and the United States.
This lamb leather has a deep rich color with a subtle texture. 
This swatch is approx 2"x2" for previewing.

$30 charge for custom order. 


Swatches are final sale.
