We have a few sources for traditional, brain tanned, smoked deer hides.  This leather is very difficult to obtain these days and has become quite expensive.  Each piece is cataloged and priced separately.  The price varies by the quality of the hide, thickness, color, and suppleness.

Our Gxx codes denote individual hides. If you would like to order a specific one, please go to our Gallery to pick the exact one shown.

A Note on Smell

The smoked deer, elk, and moose hides have a strong smell of wood smoke.  This is considered to be a desirable trait by many customers, but can be overwhelming for people living in a small house or apartment.  The smoke leaves creosote behind that binds with the fibers in the hide.  This keeps the hide soft and flexible when wet and helps to preserve the hide, making this leather ideal for gloves and moccasins.  The smoke will dissipate with time and use, but it can take years for most of the smell to leave.

It is possible to remove much of the smoke smell by placing the hide in a tub and washing it with soap and water.  The hide then needs to be tacked out on a piece of plywood so it does not wrinkle when drying.  We do not offer this service for customers, so please consider undertaking this project before buying these hides if you are worried about the smell of smoke being too strong.
