  • Cork Moose Leather 3.5 oz – Full Hides

    210$ Canadian397$ Canadian

    Cork Full Moose Leather 3 1/2 ounce.   Cork is a rusty brown colour is striking no matter what you make with it.  Suede side is a medium brown.  As a wild hide cork moose highlights the variations in a moose hide.  Full moose show the life and experience of a moose.  There are bumps, warts and scars in the skin and cork makes it visible.  But for artistic creativity those ‘imperfections’ allow for tons of creativity.  Seconds, means they have a few holes, the smooth side and suede are quite nice, but for moccs (cutting out lots of little pieces) seconds are a great way to save some $$.

  • Gold Moose Leather 3.5 oz – Full Hides ‘Seconds’

    119$ Canadian273$ Canadian

    Gold/Tan Full Moose ‘seconds’ special: People are always asking us what ‘seconds’ leather means. Here are 2 good examples. Both hides are seconds. Full moose, the piece on left is suede out, the smooth side has a good scuff in the middle, SO it gets called ‘seconds’. But look, the suede side is 100% perfect. Hide on the right, skin side out, well several small holes, SO get called ‘seconds’. But if you are making moccasins or mitts those small holes won’t bother your plans at all (suede side is also 100% perfect). We guarantee our hides so when we have really bad hide we keep them here and use them ourselves…we do our very best to never ship out bad hides.

  • Gold Moose Leather 3.5 oz – Half Hides

    144$ Canadian180$ Canadian

    As you all know, we gather hides from local hunters and then we process them into leather.  Where we live (in Quebec) most moose are harvested way out in the bush and hunters have to quarter them to carry them out of the bush.  Otherwise they would simply be too heavy.  SO most of the hides we get are also quarter moose.  BUT we do have a few hides every year that are halves….cut down the spine.  Now some people love to buy full whole moose.  But it is quite emotional and challenging to take a pairs of scissors to a whole moose…cuz it’s jsut so perfect you don’t want to cut it up…..but half hides…OMG wonderful to work with…lots of leather…also not as expensive as a full moose…and the nicest leather you could imagine.  Enjoy!!

    Perfect for Moccs, Mitts, Vests, Jackets etc or a moose leather blanket.

  • Light Cream Moose Leather 3.5 oz- Half Hides

    81$ Canadian234$ Canadian

    Ultra rare Light Cream half moose hides.  My dream would be to have all the sizes in all the colours possible all year long.   But moose hides are limited….it’s not like I can call up the local moose farm and get a bunch of hides lol….  But we did put aside 70 or so half hides to do into Light Cream this year and they just arrived from the tannery.  #1 grade hides…great colour, ultra soft…we are very happy with them.  Enjoy!!

  • Medium Cream Moose Leather 3.5 oz – Half Hides ‘Seconds’

    105$ Canadian189$ Canadian

    Medium Cream Moose Halves.  Very limited supply.  In the Laurentian Mountains (where we live) most moose are cut into quarters in order to carry the moose out of the bush…..practically carrying a full moose out of the bush is really challenging.   But each year we do get a bunch of whole moose and then sometimes some half moose.  These are half hides #1 grade, simply beautiful medium cream hides.   We don’t have many…they will disappear very quickly.
