For each LP leather platter mat, the maker specifies the highest quality American cowhide split to a thickness of approximately 1.5 mm (~1/16") and precision die cut to a diameter of 292 mm (11.5”). This ensures full support of the LP’s playing surface, while still allowing a small margin of space around the edge of the LP so the LP can easily be lifted from the platter without disturbing the platter mat. The spindle hole is cut to 7.94 mm (5/16"), which will fit all standard spindles.
Here's a description of the benefits of a leather platter mat from the Hide in the Sound website:
"Static electric charge is generated during the handling and playing of your vinyl records, and felt and cork mats accumulate that static charge, which attracts dust and transfers it to your vinyl records. Static charge can also result in the annoying habit of causing the mat to stick to your LPs when you lift an LP off of your turntable.
I discovered that leather platter mats do not collect static charge, and therefore do not attract dust. I also noticed that the leather dampens turntable vibrations without smearing the frequency response…”
