Brand new colour deer from this past fall’s hunting season, these hides are quite amazing. We have several different shades of brown but with this new colour we wanted to give it a description that feels the leather. In the Secwepemc/Shuswap language Skwleqs means Brown Bear. And it is a pretty good description for this colour. They have a nice dark espresso brown tone and are these hides are going to make some amazing moccasin, vests etc…in this picture the hide on the top left is facing suede side out and right hide is smooth/skin side out.
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) If you are planning on using the suede side out, you might consider going for the ‘seconds’ to save some $$. Our seconds suede is 95% perfect…it is classified as seconds because the smooth side might be scraped or have some colour variation on the smooth side…but the suede side colour is very very even.
