Leather is measured by the square foot. The industry-wide conversion formula states that approximately 18 square feet of leather is equivalent to 1 linear yard of 54” wide fabric. This formula is based on full cowhides averaging 55 square feet. Due to the irregular shape of a hide, there will always be a certain amount of waste. Please make sure to account for unusable square footage in your COL requirement.
When selecting half hides or pure aniline hides, we recommend that you provide the cut sizes needed for your piece. This allows us to hand select the appropriate hides for your project. Each product's secondary image is an image of the collection's average hide size, for your reference. This image is to be used as an estimate. Actual hide size will vary.
