You Asked, We Heard ~ New Leather Choices in our Tafuri Tough™ Jewelry Supply Line!

Exciting changes are afoot! New professional grade dyes add more choices for our firm tooling leather bracelet supplies. New dye won’t bleed, has zero odor, and are water based, eco friendly, & professional grade.
Our new colors, SIlver and Green, already have our customers talking. We still have our old favorites: Red, Blue, Tan, Pink, Brown, or Black. Dye color will vary.
Firm leather cuffs are cut from 4-6oz high quality USA veg-tanned tooling leather, that will soften beautifully with wear. Our
hand dyed leather is always finished with a light sheen for water resistance, but some customers love to add more oil, to soften them further. We dye this leather in house, so an order for firm leather may take a bit longer, but boy is it worth the wait.
You’ve made our aniline dyed chrome-tanned supple leather bracelet supplies our BEST seller! Chrome-tanned leather is an affordable quality leather that is aniline dyed for a deep consistent
color. With Black, Brown, Wine, White, or Tan choices, your customers will love the options. Ordering black or brown? Ask for sheen for an extra layer of water resistance.
Exotic & embossed leathers are now available in un-dyed Python, limited dyed python, gator-gold embossed cowhide, and many many many limited stock embossed remnants. The BEST way to have a unique offering of Tafuri remnant cuffs is to ask for “Mary’s pick” in brights, naturals or pastel shades. Be sure to include size and hardware details!
