Where to Buy Hide... Leather

Recommended Posts

Where can I buy a 1/2 hide that's comparable to the Esprit's leather? Hopefully a place that has lots of colors, and can ship to the US... Any ideas? THe local guys here in town use Keystone leather... It doesn't feel too good to the touch, and is NOT of high quality.

Let me go ahead and answer my own question..( Should have called my brother in the first place!) Connolly is out of business, so the closest to smell, feel, quality to the Connolly leather is from the following companies:

World Upholstery sells low to high quality leather at a good price (1/2 hide for$275) and is considered an exact Connolly leather match. They will send you samples free of charge for you to match OR.. you send them a tiny piece of your leather and they can match exact leathers... They have a Free (US) phone number and are out of CA.

These guys specialize in FERRARI leather. They have very high quality leather and have a 40% DISCOUNT RIGHT NOW!! They are expensive but with the discount, it's an amazing deal.

Their leather is imported from Italy, and is the most expensive. $300 for 1/2 a hide. I believe it takes almost 1 full hide for doing both of the Esprit seats.

I'm just looking for 1/2 a hide of quality leather to upholster seat bolsters, and bar stools.

My brother and I will do all the upholstery work (more brother than me.... experience...)
