The axis deer have gorgeous coloring and are in high demand for decoration or furniture upholstery. When we say that they are used for upholstery, we mean backs of chairs or rarely used furniture. Please note that deer have a hollow hair and are not ideal for rugs. If you walk on them or let a large dog sit on them, the hair will break and shed over time. They are ideal for wall mountings, floor displays that are not walked on, etc.
Axis deer are also known as Chital deer, Cheetal deer, and spotted deer. Note that the Axis deer have spots on the spine and fallow deer do not.
