Can you recommend a supplier for leather/hides?

Postby steve on Fri Sep 19, 2008 7:04 pm

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone could suggest or recommend a supplier for leather/hides and or wire for making chain mail?
I’m living in County Dublin so somewhere near the area would be helpful but not required.

Regards


Steve.

The only place you can get leather near dublin is PJ Mooneys in the Avonbeg ind. estate off the long mile road.

They have a pretty limited selection compared to when I was shopping there first nine years ago... you might be better off buying on ebay, if you are looking for light stuff. On mail; what are you looking to achieve ? butted mail isn't very authentic, so unless you are going the full monty, and making riveted mail from wire, I'd recommend giving someone like capapie.co.uk a shout, and getting rings & riveting tongs from them. That way, you can make light authentic looking mail...

Hi Steve. You might want to try Brettun's Village for leather. Their prices seem to be pretty reasonable.

This is the site for leather in America: http://www.leatherunltd.com/index.html
You can get foreign shipping quotes and it may actually be cheaper overall (we sure have a lot of cows over here).
