Description Instructions
 
Our Repair Calf is sourced from the Indian sub-continent. The leather is initially tanned at source using white synthetic tannins. When the skins arrive in our Edinburgh Tannery, we remove the majority of this original tannage and then re-tan, using Tara or Sumac. In addition to improving the leather with these superior tannages, we also add our Archival tannage, yielding leather that is both durable and a pleasure to use.

You can see examples of our Archival BV Repair Calf on the following finished books: The Abstract Garden, Minute Books, Cuts of Craft Workers and The Domesday Book - Millennium Edition, that are featured in the Showcase area of our web site.

Reviewer: Christopher Coggins from Harrogate, NORTH YORKS United Kingdom  
This leather is for designer bindings and repairs where I can dye the leather to the exact shade required (as recommended by Dieter Räder at the 2016 SoB Seminar)
