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 Tanned” Cow Leather in Colours

    43$ US347$ US

    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, green, black and gold.  A mixed bundle will include red, blue, green and purple.

  • White Tail Deer Raw Hide

    85$ US

    This Raw hide is from farmed wild Whilte 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).

  • Leather drum ‘blankie’

    19$ US

    The very best way to care for your drum long term is 1) bear grease treatment twice a year AND 2) keep your drum covered in leather all the time!!  We make beautiful moose leather drum bags but they can be outside the budget sometimes. So for a budget solution our split leather is perfect.  We select 6 to 7 sq ft pieces and this is plenty to wrap your drum with.  It can then live inside a canvas or plastic bag…..but the leather will protect your drum.
