[BKARTS] large cow or buffalo skins

Jake, about three years ago I needed a hide for a huge (I mean huge!) Regency
Hewit & Sons supplied with me with a very, very large dyed calfskin (looked
like a small cow suit!) The only drawback was, as I recall, an almost two month
delivery schedule because they had to special order from their (I think)
Scandinavian supplier. They handled the job with their usual good humor and
Two months ago a client sent me some pieces of dyed, vegetable tanned cowhide
which he picked up in Buenos Aires. I believe that he said the firm was
called, what else?, the Argentine Tannery. He is again out of the country but I've
emailed him to try for more details. I hope that time is not pressing.
Lastly, TALAS is carrying some South American leathers; I bet they'd inquire
of their supplier for you. Best, James
