Leather Splitting

The process of dividing leather into multiple layers is referred to as “splitting.”
Leather is run through a machine where it is split (or shaved) evenly with a large
band knife.

Splitting leather removes any variation in hide thickness and reduces the
weight of the hide allowing for a more even application. Split leather is
most often for steering wheels, consoles, dash boards, door lining and
door panels.

Details & FAQs

  • Maximum size for split leather is a half hide or panel/piece up to 25 inches wide.
  • Our machine has the capability to split leather down to 0.4mm; however we do not recommend going lower than 0.6mm.
  • Turnaround time is typically same day or one business day.
  • Have your own leather that you need to split down? Contact us and we’ll be more than happy to split your leather.
  • Please note: leather splitting is often times confused with leather skiving. Leather splitting and skiving are two different processes. Leather skiving reduces the thickness of leather in areas that are to be bent or folded (typically the edge), rather than the entire piece.
