Weight:  5.0-5.5 oz

Since the beginning, we've been on a quest to provide the maker community with excellent and interesting leather options in tannages and/or from tanneries all over the world that aren't as widely known.  Nilo, from MPG Industria Conciaria in Italy is one of the next of these in our lineup.  

Nilo is 100% vegetable tanned, firm-tempered, and the colors are very rich.  In these ways, it is similar to Dakota from La Perla Azzurra, which originates in the same region of Italy.  If you're comparing the two leathers side-by-side, you'll notice that Nilo feels slightly less heavy/dense (a different blend of fats/oils during the hot stuffing process), and the texture of the grain is more natural and prominent (i.e. the additional texture points to no "grain correction" (i.e. buffing/sanding)).  

It burnishes very well, it's easy to hand sew and machine sew, it behaves very well with Aquilim water-based adhesives, the colors are solid and consistent, and it has a great smell.  Nilo has enough body at 5oz to hold up well as an unlined/unstructured tote and other types of bags, as well as other items like single layer watch straps, lanyards, key fobs, etc.  At split weights 2-3oz, it's fantastic for wallet exteriors, interiors and lining for larger goods.  

Nilo comes in double shoulder form, so by nature will have some range natural striation marks through the chest area of the hide.

GRADING:

- Grade A - Great quality, very little to no flaws beside what is mentioned above.

- Grade B - Not-so-perfect - will have more noticeable range marks or scratches, broken grain, or slight color variation over a small portion of the panel. 

- Grade C - Will be heavily marked and flawed.
