for further assistance.
Why buy from Leather Hide Store?
We are a family owned company that sells premium upholstery leather (cowhide) at wholesale prices direct to the public & trades. For the last 15 years we have been the largest online seller of premium upholstery with both exceptional selection and service. Please visit our Customer Gallery
to see countless projects in our leathers and read customer reviews. Remember, we will also offer samples of the leather before you buy!
Are your hides 100% genuine cowhide leather?
With our prices it’s hard to believe but YES, they are 100% top grain cowhide leather.
Do you use exotic animals?
No, all of our croc, snake, lizard, and other patterned hides are embossed cowhides.
How is upholstery leather sold?
Upholstery leather is sold by the hide and prices range depending on hide quality and size. Hides are measured in square feet (sq ft). We also sell half hides and smaller pieces called leather remnants
How do I request samples?
To order a sample click the "Order a Sample" button beside a product and it will be added to your cart. Samples are 89 cents each & sample orders are filled within 1-2 business days. Your samples should arrive within 5-7 days. For more information on samples see Store Policies
How can I find an existing match for my leather?
Send a small 1-2 inch piece to us along with an estimate of how much leather is needed (or description of your project) to Leather Hide Store, 105 W Corbin St., Ste. 202, Hillsborough, NC 27278. We will send back your piece along with samples that best match. Please include your contact information (phone number, email & mailing address) in case we have questions.
Why do you have limited quantities of some hides?
Leather Hide Store is able to offer such exceptional prices because many of our hides are premium closeouts from our tannery partners. This means that in most cases when they are gone they are gone for good. Our Collection
of leather hides are regular inventory items and available on demand.
Can I use your leather in my car?
Yes. We recommend only pigmented leather
for automotive use as it typically has both a durable finish and strong UV resistance. Our auto upholstery leathers
meet these requirements! However, for custom cars that will not be exposed to daily sun or heavy wear, any upholstery leather sold here is acceptable. Note, even pigmented leather should be regularly conditioned at least twice a year with a quality leather care product.
Can I use your leather on my motorcycle?
We would recommend pigmented leather from our auto upholstery collection
for greatest durability. Remember, our leather is only water resistant - water proofing (including the stitching) is recommended as an additional step.
Where does your cowhide leather come from?
Our leather upholstery hides come from tanneries across the globe with most of our cowhides coming from the United States, Europe and South America.
How do I clean and care for my leather?
