Maximum quantity available reached.

We spent a long time looking for the perfect water-based leather glue that could be used for all projects.  What we realized pretty quickly was that we were hunting for a unicorn.  There are some fantastic products out there, but our opinion is that none of them is truly perfect for every type of project.  Over at District Leather, we regularly use 4-5 different types of glue depending on the product.  This water-based glue from Craft Sha has been in rotation most frequently as of late with our waxy/oily veg tans (incl. shell cordovan). 

What we like about it:

  • Water-based, so no nasty fumes
  • Dries quickly
  • 2-part (i.e. contact glue) that holds very well after letting dry to tacky and then compressing with a roller or edge clamps
  • Spreads thin and evenly (you do not want to slather on a thick coat of this stuff, as it will compromise the integrity of the bond)
  • Works well with oily leather (tip:  apply one coat, let dry to tacky, then apply a second coat)
  • Easy clean up
