Bunee Woven Leather Sheets
Our Bunee (boo-knee) leather is a 100% hand woven leather sheet made up of 1/8" inch (3mm) strips tightly woven together. We use goat leather as it is a soft, durable, and lightweight. The edges of the 39" x 31" panels are sewn together to hold the weave in place. After cutting you will need to sew the edge to hold the weave together. You can also choose to add your own fabric backing or leave it natural (without backing). If left natural there will be small gaps between the weave, but rest assured the tight weave will hold together over time! Weaving leather is an age old art form that takes time and skill, and we hope you find our quality up to your standard!
