After many years of bad dealing with tanneries in 1984 I found Advantage fur dressers in Houston texas back then it was called con-tan but the new people that took over back then continue the same quality no bull straight forward business that I like, they have done skins for me that I thought were not tannable if a skin is not going to tan they call you and let you know they are located at 5816 Kansas st. Houston Texas 7707 tel. 713-868-3503 ask for Fran, send them one skin and try them let me know what you think.

Con-Tan and Advantage have never been one in the same. A contan employee started Advantage sometime after 1986. I know this because I was shaving at Con-Tan in 1986. My uncle was the original owner of Con-Tan. He started the business in his back yard, and grew it into a sucessful tannery.

I am looking for a US supplier of shoe leather and have not had any luck whatsoever. Do any of these tanneries mentioned also deal in shoe leather? Please e-mail me if you can help in any way.

Thank you!
