Over the years we have refined and improved our range of splits considerably, we stock good clean skins, not just the top workable surface, but our splits also have very clean backs- showing little vain or loose flesh- this makes them ideal for use in the manufacture of unlined satchels, bags and belts. Large, regular shaped whole butts, offer great cutting of large patterns and good length for strapping and belts.
