Simulated Leather

To all those scale nuts out there I just have to share with you what I consider a gold mine of a find. Simulated leather that is paper yes and it can be washed and sewn! All diferent patterns 0.01 inch thick and up. Example check your jeans if you have a leather tag on the back chances are its not leather its paper! The only problem at this moment in time there is no retail outlet unless some one like Hobby Lobby International picks up on it.
Name of the ccompany Colowa International Group I am hoping they will supply me with two sheets for my Super Ariston boat sheets are 39x59 and cost is $15 but a premium for shipping ex Europe.
I have tried all sorts of produccts in the past ladies handbags school book covers nothing works 100% its eeither to thick or it tears or it just doees not look right

I've gotten some very nice fine grained leather from old wallets.

No, I also build model boats. If you look up Super Ariston you will see my 1/4 scale scratch build boat, the seats are 16" wide.
My main reason for posting was to let modelers know what is out there and also perhaps large art and craft stores may carry this product
