OLD WORLD VEG-TAN BELLIES
"Old World Bellies have a classic look that only Veg-Tan can give. The color is great and they burnish really well. This leather is suitable for geometric stamping and lining projects." - Dustin Loftis, owner of The Dusty Hide Leather Co.

FIEBING'S DYES & FINISHES

ECO-FLO TANDY NEAT LAC

"I use Eco-Flo® Tandy Neat-Lac because it keeps color where I want it and stops color from seeping into the leather where I don't want it. It pairs perfectly with Fiebing's™ Antique Paste. My tooling has a more dimensional look and feel when I resist with Neat-Lac vs other products I have used!"

- Dustin Loftis, The Dusty Hide Leather Co.

 TANDYPRO® TEMPLATES BY MAKER'S LEATHER SUPPLY

"I enjoy TandyPro® Templates by Maker's Leather Supply because they save time and simplify a lot of the process. They also give me a little more confidence in the steps you need to take to deliver a quality piece."

- Dustin Loftis, The Dusty Hide Leather Co.
