    I believe that is referred to as pebble grain leather.

    That is llama skin. Ask nutcracker about it. They are his shoes.

    Two small-ish llama hides, I've just bought on eBay today. With a bit of luck (haven’t seen the leather yet), the brown leather might make a nice pair of shoes/boots and the blue one a summer loafer.

    But then, it might not work out and I have to think of something else.

    Damn. Very nice. If the brown does not work out for you, I'd be interested.

    JB, any ID on the maker? I know Nutcracker's partial to Japanese artisans so my guess would be Fukaya due to the last. Just curious.

    Thanks Bengal, I should have figured. The Llama looks incredible.
