At Rustic Leather we want you to be informed
about your leather purchase. Here is a handy &
easy to use leather thickness chart.
Leather thickness is usually measured in
ounces. One ounce equals 1/64" in thickness.
Thus, a weight of 4 to 5 oz. means the leather is
1/16" to 5/64" in thickness. The thickness of
leather varies to some extent throughout the
hide. This is why leather is usually shown with a
range of thickness such as 4 to 5 oz., or 6 to 7
oz. As a comparison, a quarter (coin) is equal
to a 4 oz. thickness. A standard thickness for
belts is 7 to 8 oz leather.
