Design notes

A chocolaty brown colored leather that has a full grain leather finish on one side and a suede like finish on the other.

The 'antique' nature of the finish makes the leather look aged and worn in. This includes 'cracking' in the color and color variation. Some natural imperfections could appear on the surface of the leather.

This leather is ideal for interior design applications and a favorite choice amongst Interior Designers.

Typical uses

Upholstery, bags, wallets, clothing.

Adhesives, joints & fastenings

Rivets and common sewing techniques will work for joining this material.

Hint - Laser cut thread holes and pieces can be stitched neatly by hand.

Medium and Heavy vector lines pretty much cut the leather all the way through (90%), making the cut very fragile.

Update: I did some tests, the light vector is barely visible on the surface. The raster however is great - with little difference between the medium and light. The raster just takes the sheen off the surface of the leather. To give line highlights to the surface, I would try thin < 1mm light raster lines.

Does anyone know how opaque this materials is when held up to a bright light? I'm considering it far a camera bellows.
I would reinforce it with another more rigid material but not on the creases and I'm worried about light passing through.

Hi Erik! I just had a look at a piece I have here and it's very opaque - I didn't notice any light coming through myself - except through my sewing holes.
