Braintanned Deer Hides

Brain tanned deer skin hides

Braintanned Deer Hides

Braintanned Deer Hides are the most authentic type of deerskin available. They say you haven’t really worked with leather until you have worked with Braintanned.

Braintanned Hides are so soft, with a unique texture, you have to use it to really appreciate it! We offer smoked Braintanned hides.  Smoking maintains their softness and gives the hide a light tan/smoke color. You will also smell the smoky fragrance, which is typical of a smoked Braintanned hide.

Our Braintanned Hides come from harvested Deer, not farm raised.  You will see marks on their hides from injuries (barbed wire fences) they sustained when they were running free.  In the tanning process there can be rips that would be sewn at the time of tanning.   Our tanner uses imitation sinew to sew these rips.

Braintanned Hides will turn to stiff rawhide when they get wet if they have not been smoked.

We sell Braintanned Deerskin Leather by the hide. Select from the sizes listed.

Rawhide Lacing

Rawhide Lacing

Rawhide Lacing

Use both 1/4″ and 3/8″  pre-cut Rawhide Lacing to make your own drums! Rawhide is untanned Leather, so it is very hard.

To use this lacing, soak it in warm water for a couple of days to soften it.  You will find it has the consistency of wet noodles when it is ready to use. It will shrink when it dries.

Please note you would not use Rawhide  to make clothing or most jewelry. Try our Hand Cut Deerskin Lace or Deerskin Lace Spools instead.  Use Imitation Sinew for sewing.

Crafters can use this product to make quilled drops for jewelry or accessories.

We sell our  3/8″ and  1/4″ wide Rawhide Lace in increments of 10 feet or 60 feet.

Blanket Strip – Dark Red

This Blanket Strip – Dark Red comes with gorgeous Pony Bead Rosettes. Master Craftsman Andy Bullock created this Blanket Strip with Dark Red wool.  He beaded the strip and Rosettes on Braintanned Deerskin Leather. Twisted Braintanned Deerskin tassels hang from the center of each of the four Rosettes. White Center Red Crow Beads decorate each tassel.

Andy beaded this strip with 8/0 Pony Beads. For the rosettes he used Reproduction White Center Cranberry, Pony Trader Blue, Mustard, Cobalt Blue and White Pony beads. He composed the remainder of the strip with 7 rows of lazy stitch beaded with 8/0 Pony Beads in Pony Trader Blue, Cobalt Blue, and White.

The Native Americans of the Northern Plains created Beaded Blanket Strips in the mid 19th century. Blanket Strips originated as a means to cover the seam when two Braintanned Buffalo Hides were sewn together to create one large robe. Eventually, Native American crafters began to use wool Trade Blankets for robes. They added their beaded strips to them in a purely decorative manner.

The beaded portion of this Blanket Strip measures 56″ long. It includes a total of 4 rosettes, each measuring 7.5″ in diameter. The blanket itself measures approximately 65″ x 45″.

Knife Sheath Blackfoot Style with Dagger

Blackfoot Style Knife Sheath with Dagger

This colorful fully beaded Blackfoot Style Knife Sheath will make a stunning addition to your collection!  The crafter used Mustard, Cobalt Blue, White Center Rose and Turquoise Seed Beads to create the designs.  He attached the beadwork to a Strap Leather Sheath and edged the front with Red Bias tape.  Deerskin Leather covers the back and pieces of Deerskin Leather Lacing serve as loops for you to use to attach the Sheath to your belt.   The unique arrow-like shape holds a double edged Dagger that comes with the Sheath.  The Knife is held in the upper part of the Sheath.  The lower part of the Sheath is ‘stuffed’ and soft.

The beaded knife sheath serves both functional and artistic purposes. Functionally, the sheath protects the knife blade from damage and provides a secure and convenient way to carry and store the knife. Artistically, the intricate beadwork showcases the skill and creativity of the maker and can reflect the cultural heritage of the crafter’s Native American community.  Crafters typically create beaded knife sheaths using small beads, often made of glass, bone, or metal. They weave or sew these onto a base material, such as Deerskin leather or fabric.

The Dagger measures 12.5″ long and has a  7.5″ long blade.  The wood handles features a few Brass Tack decorations.  The Knife Sheath measures about 16″ long.  It measures 3.5″ wide at the widest point and 1.75″ at the narrow point.  A previous owner used this Sheath and you will see discoloration and signs of wear on the back.  The beadwork remains intact and the set is in very good condition.

This Red Blanket Strip is beaded on Selvedge Edge wool.  Master Craftsman Andy Bullock beaded the strip and Rosettes on Braintanned Deerskin Leather.  He used Pony Trader Blue, Mauve, White and Cobalt Blue Seed Beads to create the 7 row strip and the 4″ Rosettes.  Braintanned Deerskin Lacing tassels hang from the center of each of the four Rosettes.

The Native Americans of the Northern Plains started making Beaded Blanket Strips in the mid 19th century. Blanket Strips originated as a means to cover the seam when two halves of a Braintanned Buffalo Hide was sewn together to create one large robe. Eventually, Native American crafters began to use wool Trade Blankets for robes. They add their beaded strips to them in a purely decorative manner.

The beaded portion of this Blanket Strip measures 43.5″ long  x 3.25″ wide . It includes a total of 4 rosettes, each measuring 4″ in diameter. The blanket itself measures approximately 60″ x 45″.  One of a Kind!

Quilled Antique Bag

Antique Braintanned Leather Bag with Quillwork and Beadwork

This collectible Quilled Antique Bag is a fantastic find!  The crafter used Braintanned Deerskin Leather to make the bag.  He or she covered the bottom of the bag with Porcupine Quillwork in Red, Green and Orange quills.  Then the crafter attached 11 strips covered with more quills in Red, Green, Blue and Yellow.  The crafter attached these strips together at the bottom with a single Dark Blue Seed Bead between each one.

Along the sides of the bag, the crafter added Lazy Stitch beadwork in Turquoise, Dark Blue and White Center Red Seed Beads.  More Dark Blue Seed Beads appear along one edge of the Quillwork.  At the top of the bag, you will see edge beading in White Center Red and Turquoise Seed Beads along with the remains of mostly missing quillwork.  At the very bottom you will see the remains of Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing fringe or drops.

Native Americans use Quillwork to adorn a wide range of items, including moccasins, leggings, and dresses, as well as personal accessories like bags, pouches, and jewelry.  Historically, quillwork was primarily practiced by women, who gathered the quills and prepare them for use. They cleaned, softened, and dyed the quills using natural materials such as berries or roots.  This Quilled Antique Bag itself measures 5″ x 2″.  The quilled strips are 1.75″ long and the remaining fringe is about 3″ long.  Overall the bag measures about 7″ long.

This Bag is very fragile due to its age.  You will see some quills and beads are missing, as well as most of the bottom fringe.  We are selling it in a Ryker mount to help protect it.  One of a Kind!

These traditional infant-carrying devices securely hold and protect infants while allowing caregivers to carry them hands-free.  Cradleboards come in a variety of styles depending on where they are used. Some indigenous communities in North America still use cradleboards.  Crafters may decorate them with intricate carvings, beadwork, or other cultural symbols.    This Cradleboard measures approximately 7.5″ long overall and 3″ wide at the widest point.  We got it in a collection.  You will see signs of wear and discoloration, but it remains in good condition.  One of a Kind!
