Design notes

A light tan colored leather with a smooth finish on one side and a suede like finish on the other. Can be dyed to alter the color and oiled to improve water resistance. Natural markings and defects may be seen, and these hallmarks are part of the character of the leather.

This material is cut smooth side up. Protective trasfer tape adheres poorly to the leather, so discolouration can occur around the cut lines on the underside of the material. Detailed or large areas of raster engraving are not recommended on P3 sheets as it can cause the material to warp.

To determine the optimum engraving depth for your design, we suggest prototyping or purchasing a sample of this material from out sample store.
