      I get my leather from Hanson Towers, in Rochester Kent.
      They supplied all the leather for Troy.
      Here’s their website:

      There’s not much on the website, to be honest, but you can give them a call and arrange to go and buy a whole hide of leather. A hide of 3mm veg-tanned leather costs about £45, depending on size. You get to choose your own hide as well – they’ll take you into the tannery and you can choose the piece you want. You get to see all the other kinds of leather they do as well.
