I was wondering why is that comercial tanneried are able to deal in a better way with problem hides ( posible hair slipage). I hear many people recomend that when a hide is in a questionable state then it should be send to a comercial tannery vrs do it at home. I am new so I was wondering what do comercial tanneries do to the hide
