    I've never heard of cow hide being restricted in any way, or horse hide or sheep or goat.

    All I've heard about are the restrictions on badger pelts in the UK and seal pelts in the USA. These are each nation's laws and not a CITES matter as far as I know.

    I didn't think that they were restricted but I wasn't sure if there possibly was a form that had to accompany the accepted leather items for customs.

    There are complicated US laws about labelling leather garments for sure.

    You can Google:

    Federal Trade Commission Textile & Wool Acts

    FTC 16 CFR Part 24 leather guides of 2008, 1995
