Natural Maroc ‘Copper’

The finest quality goat skin leather, finished with a warm and silvery toned metallic foil. A true ‘full grain’ leather, with each skin showing a beautiful and unique grain pattern like a fingerprint.

These are extra small skins, selected for their beautifully fine grain pattern, which shows through the ironed foil. As the leather is used and worn the foil gently rubs away, giving an interesting and beautiful effect.

Our goats lived a free range life, roaming fields and lush scrubland in rural India. Because of this, the skins will always show unique marks and patterns that have naturally occurred. These can include scratches and blemishes, occasionally the odd small hole, differences in grain texture, and sometimes a dappling change of colour too. These characteristics occur on every skin to a degree, and should be embraced as the individuality which makes this natural material so beautiful.

Goat skin is a very durable leather with minimal stretch, whilst also possessing a supple and floppy handle; making it ideal for all types of upholstery including deep buttoning/tufting, and also desk or table inlay, bookbinding, clothes and accessories.

Panel Size Information

Goat skins are narrowest in width beneath their shoulders where the shape naturally scoops inwards. Should you require a rectangular panel, the maximum width will be determined by this narrow point.

If an alternative shape is requested (circle, tall and thin rectangle, square etc.) it may be possible to cut a shape with a wider width, or a taller length.

Skin sizes and dimensions are always taken from averages and are therefore approximate.
