Leather

 

Leather Considerations- When choosing which leather and color to use consider the following

Buffalo is the thickest, runs about 8 ounces, and most supple, and durable of the heavy leathers and is the first choice for the main body.
It has a great natural edging as well! I have some colors in a lighter weight as well, 3 - 5 ounce, which can be used for trim or lighter weight moccasins.

Elk is great for those individuals who want a lighter weight buttery leather, about 5 ounces. It works great for all trim areas, and has a great natural edge.
Works well for individuals who want a lighter weight moccasin. Makes great natural edges for use on cuffs and any other trim pieces.

Deer is great for light weight trim areas only, about 3 ounces. It has a great natural edge as well.
It is not suitable for the main body, toecap or heelcap because it scuffs easily, is too light weight, and will not hold up under any rugged use.

Bullhide is a close second to Buffalo in weight, about 7 ounces, comes in some wild colors, but it is stiffer and not as supple as buffalo.
I recommend not using it for a toecap because of it's stiffness and inability to stretch well like the Buffalo. Bullhide does not have much of a natural edge.

Color differences can be noted on the photos of boots, some darker, or even brighter than others of the same color.
This is due to different dye lots for each order of leathers.  Buffalo, Elk and Deer hides may contain natural range marks.
