leather bellies: size and shape

Premium vegetable tanned bellies: "Vachetta" leather

Premium vegetable tanned bellies

Vegetable tanned leather bellies require different processing than other leather parts (bends, shoulders, calf sides etc..) because they have a different shape, different grain and a different thickness. In fact, bellies are cut before the tanning process, when the skin is still in raw, and put into the drums to be tanned separately. Generally leather bellies are long and narrow, they have a surface area ranging from 5 to 10 square feet and a length from 2 to 2,50 meters and an average width of 40cm. The more valuable bellies are those which surface is larger and the shape is squared.

Bellies are characterized for a very fine grain and are suitable for the production of sandals, handles, straps, purses and leather accessories in general. Sometimes they can also be used to make belts or objects that require very long lengths, although thickness (usually 2mm - 5oz.) can not be compared to other types of thicker leather (like bends or shoulders). Finally, like many other vegetable tanned leather, they are perfect for tooling. These premium veg tan bellies come directly from the Italian supplier that provides the bellies for a famous brand.
