Hi,
I am planning on making photo album. I would like to use recycled leather for the covers but I can't find anywhere that sells recycled leather. Does anyone know recycled leather suppliers? Thanks...

I have heard of people using leather coats from a charity shop. When we threw out our old leather settee I cut out the leather on the back as it was perfect and used it to cove an antique chair. Maybe you could find someone who is replacing theirs.

Otherwise http://www.pittardsleather.co.uk/category/leather-skins-and-hides/29/0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0/1 are a good source of new leather. If you are able to get to their factory shop in Yeovil, Somerset then you can pick out your own.

It would be worth giving a company called leprevo a call (can't post a link yet I'm afraid but a quick google will show the way)

They are always very good.
