Places to buy leather

Hi all!

I've recently moved to Switzerland and will be studying here for the next 2 years or so. Not long after moving here I found out just how expensive shipping stuff here can be! so, hoping to keep my hobby of leathercrafting alive, I was hoping someone knows a place where I can get leather hides for leather work and if prices are fair. I have searched the web but have come up empty handed.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you,

Tai

Lederversand-Berlin seems to be a popular mail order shop for leather hides:

Re: Places to buy leather

In my experience, for this sort of thing, you need to Google in the local language, and indeed both "cuir suisse" and "leder schweiz" find some possibilities. Without digging deep through them, and without making any promises regarding price:

Re: Places to buy leather

I find using the phone book in search. ch better to find specific products and services here as a lot of good companies have crap websites and you can narrow your search location. There is a good supplier in Chur can't remember the name but a great range of exotic hides available.

Re: Places to buy leather

Welcome to the Neuchâtel Jura- we are not too far from you if you need help or a friendly face or coffee. And of course you may have a look at nearby France as you are right on the border- Villers le lac, Morteau, Pontarlier, etc. Le Locle buys in a lot of good leather for luxury watch straps.
