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, some colours 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.

 

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.

 

Below is a list of leathers we try and keep in stock, please note that not all colours may be in stock at all times and some colours are not available for some products.

 

Some of the leather we have in stock is a colour we don't usually do and we may not have much available and we may not be able to get more. This Limited Stock Leather is indicated by the letters LS in the options on each product page.
