Buckskin Tanneries?

Submitted by Bob on 10/26/99. ( )

Bruce (or anyone else!), I took your advice and called Sebring Custom Tannery...they offer the service I requested (buckskin tanning an elk hide), but due to their relocation, turn-around time is ONE YEAR. This is obviously too long for my customer to wait, so I need to know who else does this type of tanning. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Try Quil Ceda in Marysville, WA. (360)659-1333. They may be out of the way for you as they are for me, but they were the only buckskin tannery I could find that assured me that I would get my MARKED hide back. Several others reserved the right to send "equivalent" hides back. Their deer hides are a little thicker than I like them, but they are velvety soft and can be dyed several different colors for garment work.

I've had good luck with Y.O.S.T. (your own skins tanned). Have been very pleased with the quality and turnaround time. Don't have the contact info right now but can post it later. They advertise in Breakthrough, if that helps.
