Wickett & Craig skirting is the lowest oil content veg tan offered by the tannery.  It's incredibly versatile for all sorts of leather goods from watch straps and wallets to bags and cases.  Because it's a low oil veg tan, it's an ideal leather for wet molding as well as tooling.  

Applying Smith's Leather Balm to skirting followed by lightly buffing creates a magical transformation (see second picture of the Slate skirting example).

It's an unfinished and dry veg tan, just like natural carving leather, the grain is highly susceptible to burnishing with minimal contact.  So, even if a side is top grade from a grain disturbance and color variation standpoint, skirting sides are likely to exhibit at least some burnishing from the shipping and handling process.  If you plan to finish your leather goods with an oil/wax product like Smith's or a protective sealant (resolene, lacquer, etc.), then you will likely barely even notice these areas in the end. 

THESE SIDES ARE TANNERY SECONDS AND WILL EXHIBIT VARYING DEGREES OF IMPERFECTION.  WE HAVE GRADED THE SIDES BASED ON RELATIVE QUALITY AND PRICED THEM ACCORDINGLY.  

  • GRADE A - On par with tannery first quality sides
  • GRADE B - Very few / small grain imperfections
  • GRADE C - Minor grain defects/imperfections, usually not prevalent across the entire hide
  • GRADE D - Minor grain defects/imperfections prevalent across the whole hide, or major grain defects/imperfections concentrated in certain areas
