These quality leather hides are tanned using a method that emulates the traditional brain-tanning process. They may have some holes, blemishes, and scratches on the leather, most near the side of the hide. These commercial brain-tanned hides have a smoky smell and are as supple as the traditional brain-tanned leather. They come in different sizes and shapes, but are sold and priced by the square feet.
We currently only have elk hides, but we have seen buffalo and deer leather tanned in this process.
The commercial brain-tanned elk hides average about 22 to 23 sq. ft., ranging from 16 to 25 sq. ft.
