The Split Neck
The so-called split neck comes from the bend production which again is processed to split leather. BOXMARK mainly sells this split neck for sausage skin production on a collagen fiber basis.
The Split Belly
The so-called split belly, which is primarily used for gelatine production, is another by-product that comes from butting split skin.
