DEERSKIN LEATHER

Deerskin Leather is the core of our business.  We really enjoy and appreciate the stuff. We strive to have the largest inventory of Deerskin Leather of any Deerskin Trading Post in the West.  We try to maintain as much variety in color and grade as possible.
Deer are wild animals.  They are harvested one at a time by hunters and the hides are collected one at a time.  Truly perfect, completely unblemished hides are so rare that there may as well not be any.  However, all of the Deerskin Leather we sell is above average. Most people are aware that Deerskin Leather is most commonly dyed lighter colors. There is a reason for this: ticks, bites, scrapes, scratches, etc. that a wild animal experiences in its life tend to be more visible the darker the leather is dyed.  This is generally considered normal, acceptable, a fact of life
.
We sell the Deer Leather by the full hide.
There has been some confusion.  "Domestic", as used on this web page, does not mean a domesticated barnyard animal like a cow or a chicken.  "Domestic", as used on this web page, means that these Deerskins, which exclusively came from Wild Deer, are from the U.S.A. .

WHITE ELK SPLITS
WHITE ELK SUEDE
These White Elk Splits are sueded on both sides.  They look and feel just like Brain Tanned Leather and can be smoked to get that color.  These Elk Splits are generated from the process of splitting Full Grain Elk Leather to make the thickness level.  They are resplit and trimmed so they are also level.  These are 3-4 ounce in thickness and are soft yet sturdy.  They run 4-13 square feet with a few that are larger still.  The #1's are hole free or may have a few holes near the edges.

#1 White Elk Splits   $4.00 square foot

THE STORY ON DEERSKIN GRADING

 "The Experts Agree"
#1 This is as perfect a skin as you are likely to get off of a wild animal.  There will occasionally be a bullet hole up by the neck.  There may be some skinner cuts at the edges.
TR This stands for Tannery Run and in the world beyond Colorado Leather Goods it generally doesn't mean anything.  When we call a Deerskin a a TR, we mean a #1 that is not quite a #1 - maybe one slight blemish in the body of the hide.  These are still some of the best skins there are.  Our customers say Colorado Leather's TRs look better than the competition's #1s!
#2 This is still above average.  A bullet hole could be out towards the center of the hide; there may be a partial drag; there may be skinner cuts further in from the edges; there could be some grain damage.  These can still be usable for garments.
Craft Grade These are lower grade skins.  There will be some holes, scars, drag marks, etcetera.  This leather is very useful for craft type projects.  This is not the "pound stock" that much of our competition sites as Craft Grade.  This is good quality Deerskin, it's just not up to our #1 or #2 Selection.

No matter where you go, there you are.
