Native Americans and American frontiersman alike prized deerskin for its amazing feel against the skin, making it the hide of choice for making clothing and moccasins that withstood the demands of their harsh environment. From high end purse designers to craftspeople searching for just the right liner, a wide range of artisans utilize deerskin in their work where buttery softness is of paramount importance. Our genuine deerskin is chrome tanned and comes in whole hides that offer beautiful color on both the grain and the flesh sides.

The time involved and expense of veg tanned leathers led to the development of chrome tanning in the mid-1800s. Chrome tanning takes about a day in contrast to the one to three-month veg tanning process, making it a more economical choice. Today, about 80-90% of the world’s leather supply is chrome tanned and it is heralded for its stain and water resistance as well as its consistency in color.
