Squaring a piece of leather can be done quickly right here in our warehouse.

That means when your side arrives, there is no wrestling with 30+ SqFt of leather in your small shop.

What does “squaring leather” mean?

We realize that this phrase gets used for a couple of different things. In our case, we are talking about providing you with a straight edge on your leather side.

When you purchase the side and add this service to your cart, we simply take your selected leather, and cut the edge into a perfectly straight line.

This term can also refer to cutting a square or rectangle out of the center of your side. While we do not offer this cutting service, this is typically done in order to ensure you use the best leather in the hide for your piece. Or, you just need one big, solid piece for the project you are working on.
