REUPHOLSTERY GUIDELINES

FABRIC TO LEATHER CONVERSION

These are guidelines to give you a general idea of the amount of leather you will need for your project.

Your Upholsterer will need to measure your furniture item to calculate accurately.

How much leather do I need to cover my chair, sofa, loveseat…?
Most upholstery leather comes from a cowhide that is shaped irregularly and not all of it is suitable for use. The hide is approximately 7 feet x 7 feet.

• Each yard of 54" fabric requires 18 square feet of leather.

(18 square feet leather = 1 yard of 54 inch fabric). This takes into account any waste you will have due to the irregular shape of the leather. If you need very large cuttings you may need additional hides.

• Fabric to Leather conversion is based on 54" fabric. 

Each cowhide is a different size and it is rarely possible for us to ship you exactly the number of square feet you request. We will come as close as possible. Often you must choose if you want us to go a little over or a little under the footage you had originally requested.
