The Spanish and Chinese (and others) make material for the garment industry out of rabbit skins.  They usually trim each skin to make a rectangle measuring 6" by 12" and then sew 12 skins together to make a rectangular piece of material called a "plate." These plates are then used as trim on jackets, gloves, and other garments.  The plates can be made from natural white and natural mixed color skins and can be dyed and further processed into unbelievable colors and textures. Please see pictures below.

Our Spanish plates are the highest quality plates in the world without question.  They are used by the fashion industry in France and Italy and for garment production in Europe, the USA, China, South Korea, and Taiwan.  

The Spanish make fake dozens of imitation skins from rabbits, including leopard, mink, ocelot, cheetah, guinea pig, hamster, astrakhan, zebra, snake, tiger, jaguar, black rectangles on white (rain), blue jeans, etc.  They also make wild colors and process the skins into "sheared," "snow top," and other styles.

The size of the plates varies somewhat from plate to plate and from country to country.  Recent measurements of some plates at random are as follows: 45.75" by 24", 45.75" by 23.75", and 46" by 24".  These measurements were made on the hide side of the skin.  The plates will appear to be a bit bigger on the fur side.

The hair on the long hair plates are 1.25” to 1.5” long. The hair on the sheared plates are 18 mm or 0.7" long.

In the Native American trade these plates are often referred to as "rabbit blankets."

Long Hair Spanish Plates:#1:Double-Face:Dyed Colors

These are #1 grade dyed rabbit plates. These double-face plates give you two looks: the luxurious fur look on one hand, and the rugged leather look in another. The plates we have come with thicker skins on the fur side, while the Napa finish gives a very soft and smooth leather side. Their sizes may vary from plate to plate. They measure approximately from 24" to 27" in length, 48' to 51" in width, and weighing around 0.84 to 0.88 lbs.

The style 1 plates are thin and pliable, more softer and as smooth as the style 2 - ideal for lining jewelry boxes, purses, shoes and garment making.
The style 2 plates have a vinyl-like thickness to the backing - shinier than style 1, and more smooth than soft - ideal for sewing crafts and upholstery.

Style 1 is made in Spain and Style 2 is made in Italy using Spanish rabbits. See pictures of the dyed rabbit plates below.
