It may be that the calibration of your computer screen is causing the colors to be displayed incorrectly. Or, it may be the result of dye lot variation.

A sample should never be considered an exact snapshot of the entire hide.

Moore & Giles accepts check and wire transfer payments, as well as check-by-phone and Visa, Mastercard and Discover credit card payments.
Lead time for new production and shipping from the time the order is placed to the time we receive the product is 8-10 weeks for most tanneries. We can create custom colors of any of our articles, but Napa Silk, Kipling, and Satin Suede are all available in small quantities with a small up-charge. All other leathers have a minimum order quantity of 2,500 square feet. For all custom color orders, we ask that the customer provide a swatch for us to match. Please allow two to three weeks for a custom order sample or ‘strike off’. A ‘strike off’ is similar to a CFA. Generally, the strike off is approximately 8×10. Once approved by the customer, lead time for production is 4-6 weeks.
