Goatskin is one of the most popular leathers for premium Bibles. It has a natural grain which looks and feels exquisite and is highly flexible. Goatskins tend to have a more resilient surface than Calfskins, and have a more pronounced texture. Goatskins textures vary depending on the techniques used by the tannery. Goat hides are available in a wide range of sizes, colors, qualities and finishes suitable for bookbinding.
We obtain our goatskin leather from a family business established in 1917, They have provided the highest quality leather book binding supplies, best-value products in the leather market for over 100 years.
Cowhide is naturally a firm leather lending itself to a durable and rugged feel with a prominent natural grain finish. It is also comes in very large skins and can accommodate even the largest of books.
Cowhide is tough and reasonably durable, but in its natural state there are some that say it is not as attractive as goatskin.
