Leather cuts

I have been preparing some literature for our leatherwork displays and wanted to share with you this diagram of the different cuts of leather hide available.


Butt: Strongest and best quality leather of the hide. Often referred to as 'bridle leather'. This is the leather that we use to make our dog collars.
Shoulder: Often used to make bags, thinner, more grainy part of the leather
Back: Incorporates both the shoulder and butt. This is a particularly useful cut if you require a long strap of belt.
The thickest part of the hide is on the butt, closest to the tail. 



Sizing - Makers of English leather dog collars, lurcher/whippet/hound collars, leads and other leather accessories
All of our leather collars are made to order and tailored to each individual dog.

Your collar will be made specifically for your dog so we are able to design a collar for you if you need something a little different. Contact us on 01545 580970 or sales@vauxandjames.co.uk to discuss your requirements.
