Aniline Straight Grain Goats skins are synonymous with 18th and 19th Century French bindings. Our skins are tanned and dyed and left with a semi-transparent finish. The skins are then embossed with a straight grain, giving a natural looking and luxurious leather. This leather is ideal for new bindings and restoration work. It will take both gold leaf and foil and can also be blind-tooled. The grain runs parallel to the spine, but can be printed perpendicular to the spine upon request.

You can see an example of our Aniline Straight Grain Goat on the following finished books: The Highgrove Florilegium and Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam - Solander Box that are featured in the Showcase area of our web site.

5 of 5 Ideal for presentation work December 30, 2016
Reviewer: Joseph JOHNSON from GARRAN, ACT Australia  
A very attractive grain, with great tactile qualities. It takes foil and tooling very well and is particular;ly suited to presentation bindings as well as to personal library volumes.

3 of 5 aniline straight grain goat November 30, 2016
Reviewer: Susie Cobbledick from Saint Louis, MO United States  
I have not had a chance to work with the goat yet, but as soon as I unpacked it I noticed that the grain is not in the direction I need it to go. I will have to cut my spine across the spine of the skin; something I would prefer not to do. When I see this grain on books, it is horizontal, not vertical.
I do not want to return the skin; I will make it work, but I would suggest changing the grain direction in future. Just a thought.
