     How is leather sold?  The most economical way to buy leather is to purchase it exactly like it comes from
     the tannery.  In this form, leather is usually priced by the square foot and sold as a complete hide.  The size
     is measured on measuring devices at the tannery.  Leather comes from the tanneries in various shapes and
     sizes depending on its intended use and the animal from which it came.

     For ease of handling during tanning, large animal hides are usually cut into smaller sections (sides,shoulders,
     bellies, etc.) at the tannery.  Skins of smaller animals such as calf, goat, pig and reptiles are tanned and sold
     in their original shape.
