I have seen references to this material on European forums. It seems there is a leather that is tanned on the outer surfaces but with a core that remains rawhide. I have done a little leather work over the years but never seen this material available in the US. Anybody have information or a source for this material? It apparently is very hard when wet formed and holds a lot of detail. It also has a lot of shrinkage.
