Leather Info

The leather we use is between 1.3 and 3mm thick.Some leather is coloured by dyeing and others by a coating on the top surface.Different coloured leather reacts differently when hit by the laser, somecolours will absorb the beam so will be easier to engrave whilst others partly reflect the beam and need more power and a lower speed to engrave well.


Leather is a natural product, so marks andimperfections may be found, we always try and cut around these. There may alsobe variation in colour between hides of the same colour.


Don't forget the darker the leather, the less the burnt design will stand out (check out the photo at the bottom of this page).

 

To cut the leather we use cutting dies with a clicker press which has 8 tonnes of pressure, this ensures the leather shapes are cut out very cleanly.

 

Leathers we always try and keep in stock are: Brown, Light Brown, Blue, Green, Red, White and Yellow. All other colours are subject to availability.
