Select Choice Leathers

Introducing RRB Select Choice Leather Pieces

Select choice are unique pieces of leather I’ve set aside for a special rebind. Often hides (especially bison) will have a unique section that doesn’t look like the rest of the hide. These are beautiful, unique pieces of leather. There is only one of each numbered piece.

Select choice rebind packages prices are listed with each piece. Once you’ve made a deposit on a select piece it is yours. I will put your name on it and hold it until I’m ready to rebind your Bible. You will get the exact piece of leather that you’ve reserved.
