    High quality hides

    Posted by David Dunn on Sep 2nd 2021

    I'll base my review on the fact that I have only bought a single hide, so keep that in mind. The hide arrived in a small box, well packaged. The hide is absolutely beautiful. I've never worked with ostrich before, so this was a first to me. I ordered form Ostritec because they have very competitive pricing. I love the cognac color. I would say it skews more to the red/orange color spectrum. The pearls are nicely burnished and shiny and I would say the rest of the skin has a bit of a satin shine to it. It is quite thin...around 1.0mm. Once you remove the fleshy back side of the hide, you will be left with about 0.6mm thin skin. Even though it is very thin, ostrich is extremely tough. Luxurious but tough.
