AVERAGE HIDE DIAGRAMS Since leather is a natural material and each hide is unique, these dimensions represent average hide sizes and shapes. If specific cut sizes are required, please call Customer Service.

The industry-wide formula for converting fabric yardage to leather square footage is one linear yard of 54 wide fabric equals 18 square feet of leather, based on hides averaging 50 to 55 s.f. Due to the irregular shape of the hides, there will always be a certain amount of waste; this formula takes waste into account.

When using hides smaller than 50 s.f., the manufacturer should be consulted to determine whether more leather is required due to decreased yield from smaller hides and/or whether seams will be necessary to upholster the piece.
