Isolation Specials - Virtual Powwow !!

In our experience… when times get tough…Natives get CRAFTING.

The Indigenous community is used to being self sufficient.  We are used to economically challenging times and we have the skill to create and survive.  Crafting is in our collective memory and we know how to reach back for those teaching and make a pair of moccasins, mitts etc to sell in order to feed our families. Tribal Spirit is reducing prices on lots of raw materials (leather, rawhide, drum kits etc) in order to help each other feed our families.  While other larger companies have been forced to shut down, we are an Indigenous Family business and we (Joywind and Rob) are making, packing, labeling and shipping every day.  The Post and Fedex are deemed essential services, and we believe that for the Native community……what we do….is also an essential service.

COVID-19 Update – April 2021

Our small family-run business is still up and running and working from home as we usually do.  We are extremely well stocked and shipping daily all over Turtle Island!

  • Gold Deer Leather ‘seconds’ Special

    98$ US196$ US

    This week we have been cleaning up our deer leather room and realized that we have an abundance of gold/tan deer leather where the smooth/skin side is not great…BUT the suede side is perfect!!! Colour on the suede side is very rich gold!!.  SO time for a special….  We are offering bundles of 25 sq ft for $125  (3 to 4 hides) and 50 sq ft $250 (average  6 to 8 hides).  If you like working suede out this is a great deal.

     

  • Cork/Brown Moose Bundle Special 40% off

    98$ US196$ US

    Cork/Brown 3 1/2 ounce moose leather is 40% off.  This is wild Moose from the Laurentian Mountains north of Montreal Canada. We gather them from hunters and have them tanned at a local tannery.  These quarter moose pieces are about 8 square feet (the tannery measures them). Moose are wild animals and the leather has “normal” moose life experience built into it, but we always select the best pieces possible. (and we guarantee our hide if you are not happy we would replace it)

    We are offering bundles of either 25 square feet or 50 square feet.  Bundles will be make up of several quarter moose.  The smooth side will not be perfect….a little scuffed or marked, but the suede side is 98% perfect.

  • Lime Green and Sky Blue Deer Leather Special

    20$ US47$ US

    Over the year periodically our tannery tries a new colour….sometimes it works, other times not so much….that was the case with these alchemy Lime & Sky Blue experiments.  The skin/smooth side is terrible…(unless you are looking for CAMO lime green) colour is blotchy and all over the place. BUT the suede side is quite amazing…..as this was a small run we figure lets offer them up as a suede side special for the colour inspired types out there.

  • Moose Leather – Mix Colour Bundles – ‘Seconds’

    192$ US269$ US

    This year we have 7 different colours of moose leather.  People have been asking for some mixtures so we decided to bundle up colours that work together and offer a little deal.  We have a Cream, Black, Gold, Royal Blue, Cedarwood, Turquoise and Cork.

    When creating moose leather there are always hides that have the membrane/skin scuffed up from the wild life the moose lived.  We put those pieces aside as ‘seconds’. The suede side is 98% perfect but smooth side not so much. But if you please to use suede side out this is a great way to save some $$. Pieces will average 6 sq ft. if you need larger sizes please go to the colour you want (scroll down on main moose leather page) and you can select different sizes.

  • Deer Leather Natural Tones ‘Seconds’ Mixed Bundles

    275$ US385$ US

    Deer Leather in Natural Tones: ‘Seconds’

    This year we have a bunch of new shades of leather we could call ‘natural’ tones. We have a medium gold, cedarwood, brown, light gold, sage cream and light cream.  In the tanning business, getting perfect smooth side in colours is very tricky.  Wild hides often have scar marks, or blemishes on the smooth side of the leather, we call these ‘seconds’. The suede side is always 98% perfect.  So if you are planning on using the suede side out in your project and would like to save some $$, we strongly recommend our Deer ‘Seconds”.  Pieces average 10 sq ft.

     

  • Deer Leather Colours ‘Seconds’ Mixed Bundles

    275$ US440$ US

    New for this year we are now offering all kinds of coloured deer leather.  In the tanning business, getting perfect smooth side in colours is very tricky.  Wild hides often have starch marks, or blemishes on the smooth side of the leather, we call these ‘seconds’. The suede side is always 98% perfect.  So if you are planning on using the suede side out in your project and would like to save some $$, we strongly recommend our Deer ‘Seconds”.  The colour on the suede side is perfect often better than the smooth side.  I mean the red suede side is EXTREMELY red….the same goes for all the colours. If you want individual pieces in “seconds” go to the colour you need and choose from options.
