Source for Colorful Calfskins?

Q: I just saw this ad from the 50s and was wondering if colored calf skins are still around? I did some searching but haven’t found any results. Maybe you have a suggestion for me? Thanks for your time!

Editor: From the looks of this editorial image, it is likely the skins were custom dyed for the photo — and dyeing is always a possibility. Does anyone have any resources that would save Josh the trouble of custom dyeing calfskins?
