How much leather do I need?
Leather is sold by the square foot (sq ft). However, upholsterers often give estimates in linear yards (36” L x 54”W). Just multiple the yards by 18 to get the square footage you need.
Example: Your chair needs 6 yards …6 X18 = 108 sq ft of leather. Simple!
Below is a general sizing guide – remember every project and hide is different!
