Moose and Deer Leather

leatherOur leather is from the Laurentian Mountains north of Montreal in Canada. Each year during hunting season we recuperate hides from hunters who are feeding their families, but don’t need the hides.  We gather them, process them and have them tanned at a local tannery (not brained tanned)  It is in our Native tradition to waste as little as possible.

Each White Tail Deer is approximately 10 square feet and each Moose is 8 square feet as our moose pieces are 1/4 of a moose.

Hunters in our region always quarter their moose to get them out of the forest.

  • Deer Leather Bundle (Special)

    200$ Canadian

    Deer Leather Bundle Special

    Each year we gather deer hides which we process into leather.  From a batch of these hides we recently processed a batch of White Deer (it will be available Week of 08/26) and we selected out only the perfect hides to turn into white leaving some “seconds” that we tanned into gold/tan.  The resulting gold wasn’t perfect…… The grain/smooth side is slightly marked and certainly not perfect….but the suede side IS 100% perfect.  So rather than hold onto leather that we would end up keeping for a while we are offering it at $4 (normally $8) per square foot.  Bundle of 50 sq ft for $200.  This is great leather at a great price.  Perfect for crafting, slippers etc,  really anything you do with deer, this will be perfect…assuming you can use suede side out or are able to be a little selective if using smooth side out.

    White Elk/ Wapiti Leather

    101$ Canadian144$ Canadian

    White Elk/Wapiti Leather. Back in June we scored a load of farmed elk hides. We always have a huge demand for white leather for regalia, dresses etc so we were excited to make this batch of really big hides with virtually no holes into white. Well things don’t always work as planned. The July heat wave interfered in the tanning process and the final result is a little less clean than we had planned. BUT still very nice leather. The hides are virtually white and hole free. (if any holes they are off to the side) 3 1/2 ounce in weight will make this perfect for Boots, Moccasins, bags etc. For white lacing this leather will be perfect. Or for white regalia with some allowance for a bit of a rustic look, this will be perfect. But if you wanted perfect 100% white don’t get this I would call it 90%. Priced at $8 per sq ft. Pieces run from 14 sq ft up to 23 sq ft. (normally $10 per foot)

    “Deer Tanned” Cow Leather in Colours

    50$ Canadian162$ Canadian

    Colours, Colours, Colours!!

    Pieces range from 8 sq ft to 20 sq ft.  We are very excited to introduce our new line of coloured “deer tanned” cow leather (with more colours to come).  Indigenous leather is very different from the needs of the general leather industry.  We like our leather very soft, supple, and with a matte finish (not too shiny).  For years now we have been looking for a source of ‘native’ leather in various colours cuz some projects just demand a coloured leather….but it simply didn’t exist…SO we decided to make it ourselves.    The leather is tanned EXACTLY the way deer is.  The feel is same, soft and supple, same thickness and has the same matte finish that we love.  Now available in purple, red, blue, forest green, cream and gold.

    White Tail Deer Raw Hide

    110$ Canadian 99$ Canadian

    This Raw hide is wild White Tail Deer. (we always select hides with no inconvenient bullet holes) Rawhide is used to make Hand Drums and Rattles. Raw hide is not leather….it has not been tanned….The process of creating rawhide involves removing the hair and thats it!! When soaked in water overnight it will become soft (like skin) and then when stretched over a drum and dried the skin becomes hard and sings. These are quite large hides and will make at least 3 and as many as 5 drums (depending upon the size of drum frame).
