We just finished up an new batch of these awesome, full grain, bark tanned deerskin leather hides. This skin measures 14 1/2 square feet is 8-9 oz. in weight (thickness), and is soft and pliable.
Unlike commercial tanning, bark tanning uses a combination of tree bark and other tannins in place of chemicals or other salts. Since this hide is natural and has not been dyed it is ready for you to oil, dye, stain, burn, etc.
Deer leather is the best of the best. You will find tons of uses for this piece of leather in your Native American, black powder, SASS cowboy, taxidermy and many other craft projects.
It will be great for shooting bags, moccasins, pouches, quivers, buckskin clothing, etc.
Like all natural leather hides some small blemishes, weight variation, etc., should be expected.
We encourage you to put our years of leather craft experience to work for you. Unlike other leather dealers, we not only sell hides and craft supplies, but we are crafters too
