Leather for Wrapping



Goat Skin

Goat skin is by far our most popular thumb leather. It is recommended for general purpose use. it is reasonably durable, firm and easy to work. The pebble texture helps seams disappear. Thickness: 0.8mm - 0.9mm plus or minus 0.1mm

Moroccan textured - Black

Ring Lizard Skin

AKA Water Monitor (varanus salvator - Indonesia)
Lizard skins are very durable and have an elegant look on a bow.It is hard to the feel and more difficult to work than goat. Skins are about 250mm by 250mm not including legs or heads. Though these skins are imported legally, crossing international borders may require permits from the likes of Fish and Wildlife. We do not recommend this for players that travel outside of the U.S.
