Rabbit Plates

Heather (Coyote) Rabbit Plate

The Spanish and Chinese (and others) make material for the garment industry out of rabbit skins.  They usually trim each skin to make a rectangle measuring 6" by 12" and then sew 12 skins together to make a rectangular piece of material called a "plate."   These plates are then used as trim on jackets, gloves, and other garments.  The plates can be made from natural white and natural mixed color skins and can be dyed and further processed into unbelievable colors and textures. 

Our Spanish plates are the highest quality plates in the world without question.  They are used by the fashion industry in France and Italy and for garment production in Europe, the USA, China, South Korea, and Taiwan.  

The size of the plates varies somewhat from plate to plate and from country to country.  Recent measurements of some plates at random are as follows: 45.75" by 24", 45.75" by 23.75", and 46" by 24".  These measurements were made on the hide side of the skin.  The plates will appear to be a bit bigger on the fur side.

The hair on these long hair plates are 1.25” to 1.5” long.

In the Native American trade these plates are often referred to as "rabbit blankets."
