Give your next project an authentic western look by adding rawhide accents. Used for centuries in both functional and decorative projects, rawhide is great for braiding, lacing and more. In its natural form it is strong and very hard to bend. You’ll need to wet it until it is soft and pliable enough to work with. When rawhide dries, it returns to its hard natural state retaining the shape you wet formed it into for years of beauty and performance.
Rawhide has only been dehaired and limed, but it has not been tanned. Our rawhide comes from our friends at Chahin Tannery and is available in your choice of natural or bleached that offers a more uniform appearance.
