Metallic Vatican kid leather


Extremely thin genuine kid leather can be used for needlework applique– imagine a padded silver metallic moon, a shimmering golden star or the saddle on a horse. Since it’s leather, the edges won’t fray when cut into smooth or intricate shapes. For the prettiest edge you can couch a metallic cord or braid around the shape. Specialty dry clean only, not washable.

The texture is similar to glove leather, very soft and supple with a fine, natural grain and a lustrous metallic finish. “Vatican” is an unusual mix of gold and silver!

The in-stock cut size is 4×4 (16 square inches). 6×6 (36 square inches) and larger pieces including half- or full-skins can be special ordered.
