Understanding sturgeon leather tempers and thickness

One of the first things to consider when choosing a perfect hide for your leather project is how pliable it is.

Here at SHADI we offer sturgeon in the following tempers:

  • Very soft
  • Soft
  • Semi-soft
  • Medium
  • Semi-stiff
  • Stiff
  • Very-stiff

For instance, thick and stiff leather is more suitable for interior design purposes, medium-hard leather will be the best option for shoes, and semi-soft leather for small leather goods and accessories. However, it is a very generalized recommendation, and the choice will always come down to your specific needs for a certain type of project. That’s why we have samples available to clear any doubts and be sure to make the right decision.

Another point to consider is thickness. We always indicate its range (ex. 1.2 – 1.5mm) since there is a slight thickness variation throughout a sturgeon hide, just like with most other leathers.

SHADI is mainly focused on creating new manufacturing techniques for producing fish leather, so if you have a special request for your sturgeon leather characteristics – it might be worth contacting us to see what we can do for you.
We are also always happy to assist you with your choice if browsing through a website for your perfect hide seems too daunting. Just reach out to us with the required size, color, and temper and we will do the job for you. More information can be found on our Instagram page, @shadi_leather.
