You might want to put them in contact with Steven Siegel. He is the

Also for anyone on this list interested in veg tanned goatskin suitable for
making folded stitched belts and bags from the Roman period, Siegel has a
natural goatskin for $3.50sq ft for 2nd quality and $5 sq ft for first. It
is excellent and supple and takes dye very well. I am working on a Roman
military belt right now from this leather and will post pictures when it is
