Bovine & Pig Leather Hide's

Talk about a result, i have just bought two full sides of pre dyed (light brown) and finished bovine leather and three veg tanned pig skins for an absolute steal, the leather ranges from 0.5 to 1mm in thickness and has some small blemishes, but that is only to be expected with a natural product, below is a pic of one of the sides and one of the Pig skins, the ruler is a standard 12" model (30cm in new money).

I'm not going to bother dying the pig skin, as the look and feel of it in it's natural tanned state is just about perfect, guess I'm going to be making a lot of pouches and small bags in the next week or so.
