Description

Our Economy Grade Natural Veg Tan shoulders offer extremely good value for money. A reasonable quality at a great price.

These shoulders are available in small sizes or half shoulders where applicable, and so offer the perfect starting point for the novice leather-worker and those just starting out in leathercraft: you can practise your skills without breaking the bank. Then once you’ve mastered your craft you can consider progressing onto the regular and even premium grades. 

These are of a lower quality, with marks, blemishes and more irregular shapes. Great for re-enactment. Not suitable for belts.

    If you’re after a really tough and stiff veg tan, this is what you need.
    Edges slick beautifully and whilst tooling takes a good amount of effort, it holds the forms really nicely.
    Ideal for stiff, structural panels on bags (I use it for the front panels of sporrans)
    Make sure your knife is freshly sharpened!

    A great buy, in my opinion. For economy I was expecting marks and damage all over, this was not the case. A beautiful piece of leather with only one slight flaw that is obvious (and easy to work around).
    A good, stiff, workable leather. I’ve just finished a knife sheath out of it and am really happy with the results. I’d definitely buy again

    A good strong leather with very little by way of imperfections considering it is the economy stock. Would defiantly consider buying it again.

    Ideal for the price paid. Nice light tanning so it colours well. Great for wet moulding. NIce on the flesh side too.

    Arrived swiftly and was larger than I thought it would be 3specially for the price. Good, stiff, with a regular thickness and an even light colour which is perfect for my pattern. Will definitely purchase again.

    A great piece of leather for the price and larger than expected too. Only one or two marks which I can easily work around. I ordered 1.6-2.0 but it was 1.2-1.6 according to my gauge but I’m not an expert and it’ll be good enough. Nice colour. Prompt delivery too.

    Really happy with the quality of this leather. Not many flaws at all, and nearly as good as their regular grade leather. Flesh side good too.

    I bought the economy grade leather to make up prototypes, but now looking at the quality, I’m in two minds now. Good quality leather for the price. I ordered it about 12:30 and it arrived the next morning. Great service. Highly recommend JWoodleathers.

    Mainly bought for practicing tooling, I think that idea is out of the window mainly now. For an economy piece of leather the quality is good. Very pleased with the service, delivered the next day. I have visited the warehouse previously and got some great advice when I was first starting out.

    My first project and I didn’t have a clue what I needed, asked these guys some questions and advised me really well. Very pleased with the leather, super quick delivery, I’ll definitely be buying again.

    This is my first time ordering leather for tooling and was a little unsure what to expect, I can not believe that this is the economy grade amazing, it has one major defect that has been cut out (about the size of a 10p piece) the rest of the minor blemishes are down the center spine of the shoulders and should be able to work around with minimal wastage. The only problem was with the courier company who couldn’t find my workshop because he couldn’t be bothered to read the address properly (it was very clearly written.) First class,very impressed will order again.
    Thank you

    As always the service is fantastic and the leather is perfect for the knife sheaths I make. J Woods is the first not place I buy my leather.

    I’ve used these a few times for leather, I use it for sheaths for knives and axes. Though it’s economy it’s consistently excellent.

    I regularly buy leather from these guys. I have never been disappointed with the quality. Delivery has always been next day. Prices are just right. If the prices went up I’d have to shop elsewhere but at the moment they have my business. Can not knock the service.
