EK14 Whole tan hide of English kip. (3.2 – 3.7 ounce (14 -16 sq. ft.)
KIP HIDE SIZE INCREASE: MOST ALL OF OUR HIDES THAT WE HAVE BEEN GETTING ARE COMING IN MUCH LARGER HIDES NOW, SO WE HAD TO ADJUST THE TOTAL HIDE COST PER HIDE SIZES PER THE SQUARE FEET OF HIDE YOU WILL GET NOW. SO HE AVERAGE HIDE SIZE NOW WILL BE 14 TO 16 SQ FEET PER HIDE. IF THE HIDE IS SMALLER THAN 14 SQ FEET WE WILL LOWER YOUR TOTAL COST BEFORE WE CHARGE YOU. JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU NEW WE ARE NOT RAISING PRICES, ITS JUST THAT THE HIDES ARE ALL LARGER NOW AND YOU WILL GET MORE KIP PER HIDE BUT THE COST WILL BE HIGHER DUE TO YOU WILL BE GETTING MORE LEATHER.
