A couple of weeks ago Andy at my local Tandy Leather Factory mentioned to me that some kangaroo was going to come in soon. This morning I looked at their website and it appears that they are now selling kangaroo again:
It’s on sale now at $49.99 a skin, so I drove by my local Tandy Leather Factory to check it out. According to their website it’s veg tanned, but I found out it’s the “Italian” tanned which feels almost like a chrome tan. The flesh side has a suede like texture and they are dry.
I picked up a couple of skins to play with, I’ve currently got them soaking in grease. We’ll see if I can make them into anything?
