    bellows material in the UK?

    Does anyone know a UK supplier of material to make a bellows? I would prefer something nice in dark red, but black would be OK.

    I made my last bellows from an imitation suede fabric from Dunelm, but would prefer a smooth material this time.

    Dolben leathers advertise on Ebay. If you search for "Skiver" you will find them, they sell .5mm leather in a range of colours approx £9 for a whole goatskin.

    Make sure the interior is black.

    Norman, thanks for the tip. I just bought a goatskin skiver from Ebay. Should be big enough for the wide angle belows , but I also want to make two bigger bellows so any info. about suitable cloth wouldbe gratefully received.

    Pinholemaster, I plan to use black paper strips inside the bellows.
