Rawhide?

Submitted by deb on 7/4/02. ( ) 65.103.21.81

Hello every one-
I have a question that I couldn't find the answers for in the archives.
I have a customer with a bear hide that looks like rawhide. The
critter is stiff as a board. They want it made into a rug. What
do I have to do to get this tanned and pliable? Would I be better
off sending it out to be done commercially?
Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like its been dried either air dried or salted and dried. Have a good tannery do it for you. It will save you time and money in the long run. Plus be a better finished product in most cases.


Thanks

Thanks for the opinion. That is the route that I was thinking of
taking.
