Any type of cow leather may be used for this class, though it is advised that beginners avoid using veg-tanned leather as it is more difficult to work with. Thick leather with a smooth suede side is recommended for the adjustable strap. Students may either purchase leather at the studio or bring their own, at least 10 square feet in size. Thread and hardware will all be provided at the studio.
