Introducing……drum roll please….a Tribal Spirit exclusive…”Deer Tanned” Cow…what??? ok there is a story. Over the past several year the deer season has been terrible and this year was the lowest collection of deer we have ever done. (please don’t yell at us, we are simply gathering hides from hunters who are feeding their families. The hides would have ended up in the garbage, we are just recycling the hides.) At the same time the Native community still needs leather to make regalia, mitts, wrapping dreamcatchers etc. So we went looking for an alternative to Deer Leather and came up with “deer tanned” cow. We had our tannery use the exact same process they use to create that wonderful soft deer leather feel on cow hide. SO these pieces, available in GOLD and are the same thickness (2 1/2 ounce), texture, colour and feel as deer leather. Extremely soft and wonderful to work with. The hides are PERFECT (no awkward bullet holes lol) the only problem is that they are not deer, they are cow. I know that we would prefer deer, but we are not in charge…we can’t just order up a couple hundred deer, cuz they are busy hiding in the bush. The good news is a little bit cheaper than deer. Pieces are 22 sq ft.
