Looking for a new tannery

Submitted by Jeremy on 9/3/99. ( )

I really want to find a dependable tannery with a decent turn
around and good stretch. Have been using one for a few years
now and they have let me down to many times in quality and time.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Two good choices

I have tried many tanneries and have found two that actually put out excellent work. Arlington Cape in Ohio does a beautiful tan and shaving job, probably the best I have seen, but turn around time is 5 - 6 months no matter what they tell you. Recently I sent 23 capes to Golden State Tannery in CA and their capes compare very well. They also have a 2 WEEK turn around!! This is their normal turn around on wet tanned capes. Just give them a call for instructions.

Thanks Abe?

Thanks for the compliment on our work, but the 5 to 6 month thing has me a little confused. With the exception of safari's and some of our bigger customers who don't want it all back at once, wet tans will very seldom be over 4 months, early stuff about 8 to 10 weeks. I just looked at the confirmations and capes in the pickle right now are 9 to 10 weeks. Yes we are behind on soft tans this year, and if a customer reads this that I haven't already apologized to, I'm sorry, and we are doing all we can to catch up. We've just re-arranged to have room for another set of drying racks, and this should help us catch up soon.
