    hi everyone

    I was wondering if any one could help me with a few questions. Is there a way to recolour a faded tiger rug and also what fur should I use to repair slipt spots.

    Many thanks

    Wondering if there is another type of fur that could approximate that. Not everyone has another spare tiger hide to cut up for repair parts.

    You will find that your tiger hide might well be chrome tanned. Is it blueish in color on the back? I was told that this type of tanned hide can not be gotten wet when it is old or it will fall apart. I have a tiger hide as well that I would like to have at least the head redone but was told it would be near impossible.

    Pictures of what you have to work with would be helpful.
