Uzbek Leather Products

Curriers skillfully mastered different ways of dressing durable leather. They had knowledge of the secrets of natural vegetal tanning and dyeing, and therefore were rewarded with fine elastic leather. Bukhara and Samarkand curriers dressed the famous turquoise-green shagreen made of donkey and horse hides. Delicate dyed Morocco was made of goat and sheep skin; for close dyed Russian leather cattle hides were used, while different raw hide, such as suede, was dressed from sheep skin.
