This week at Leather4Craft we have been very excited to start working with our new Vintage Collection. These premium double butt hides are carefully selected, and only the best double A grades are used for the production of these hides. The leather has a smooth, satin finish with a resin coated back in a natural colour. It has a firm feel with a thickness of 2.4-2.8MM (6.0-7.0 oz), which makes it suitable for journals, notebooks, belts, dog collars and large satchel bags.

We have taken inspiration from classic baking recipes and used these in the names of the colours of the collection (Strawberry Shortcake, Lemon Drizzle, Blueberry Frosting, Peppermint Cream and Vanilla Icing) and will also be customising our journal kits with cupcake motifs and recipe cards.

Various sized panels are now available in our webshop with the journal kits to follow in the next 2 weeks.

Watch our videos below to see how we thread and make up our journal kits and packing up one of our first vintage collection journals!

Here at Leather4Craft we take great pleasure in working alongside many varied and unique independent businesses. One of which is Lauren Aston Designs whose creations have to be seen to be believed! Have a look at her website
We have worked together with Lauren to create a stamp which we emboss onto leather tags which have been cut specifically for her, to her specifications. She then uses these on all her custom made items.

We take great pride in providing our service and attention to detail to many craft businesses. We have recently worked with people that create cosplay outfits and accessories and re-enactment clubs. Our customers use our leather for a large variety of purposes; some of the most popular are handmade bags, belts, satchels, watch straps, journals and notebooks. The world of journaling is so vast we will cover that in a future blog post all of its own!

So if you happen to be working on a project and are getting stuck thinking about the correct leather to use we are happy to help you and hopefully add to your business! You can even order samples from our webshop!
