Please note that you will receive a similar brown and white or black & white with gold metallic calf skin from our inventory. You can view the variation in color by looking at the several photos posted. We ship after payment using UPS ground from upstate NY. Please understand that due to the fact that these are natural animal skins they will sometimes have occasional marks, fire brands, and scrapes. These blemishes are not defects but simple scars that add to the natural characteristic of these skins. Our cowhides and calf skins are chrome tanned using methods improved by the Brazilian tanneries over time which yield the best quality in the industry. Our skins do not have a strong odor of hides tanned in Argentina or elsewhere.
