Colours, Colours, Colours!!
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. We would prefer to use only deer, but annual hunted wild deer isn’t enough for the demand. SO we made friends with some local family owned butchers who specialize in working with small scale farms. We bought their cow hides and created various coloured “deer tanned” cow. 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. Honestly no one would know it wasn’t deer unless you told them…”can’t believe it’s not deer” lol (buttery soft). AND just in time for the holiday season we have Green and Red available (that was an accident) and Blue. Pieces are either 8sq or 20 sq ft.
