Leather Strips are a Smithing component in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Leather strips are made by cutting leather at a tanning rack into strips, with one piece of leather producing four leather strips. Leather strips are always a required component when smithing weapons and armor, but not jewelry.


  • Leather strips can be found in some dungeons.
  • Can be found on shelves and counters in homes and shops.
  • Merchants and blacksmiths usually sell about 10–20 at a time.
  • Some leather strips can be found under Haelga's bed in the bunkhouse in Riften.
