Black Kangaroo Leather

Genuine kangaroo leather is the softest violin bow thumb leather available.

Not all kangaroo leather is suitable for violin bow wrapping thumb leather. We have worked with a tannery to bring you black kangaroo leather in the same precise mill thickness as our goatskin leather. 

This kangaroo leather has also been veg tanned with tree bark and other natural vegetable tannins to provide stability along with the right rigidity and workability needed for thumb leather. This hard to find violin thumb leather holds the properties needed for molding and forming to the bow. It is soft, supple and uniquely strong for its thickness.

This is not the rubbery-stretchy kangaroo leather seen on the cheap bows from overseas.
