Deerskin for Clothing

Deerskin has been commercially tanned in America since the 1700's. Only brain-tanned deer has the top-grain removed and is suede on both sides. Most re-enactors use top-grain tanned deerskin because it is much less expensive and is more durable than brain-tanned. The average deerskin is 7 - 12 sq. ft. in size. We can help you choose the correct sized skins when you call to order.

Colors:  Saddle, Black, Bone, Gold, Acorn, Cream, Willow ($3.50 sq. ft.), White ($5.25 sq. ft. Limited), Commercial Brain Tan ($5.50).
