Fold the hides when they are nearly dry. Make sure they are dry when you send them. Hair side out.


Leather Out!

fold them flat kinda like a square or just in half but LEATHER OUT--you may damage the hair if you dont!

.......that you're sending them to and ask how they would like you to ship them. Most tanneries will be glad to help.


Hair out or leather out just don't put them in....

Plastic, use burlap sacks or simply box them up in cardboard. But as someone wisely stated above, contact the specific taannery and they will be glad to tell you how they want to see things coming in....
