    This is one traditionally brain tanned, hair-on, painted buffalo hide. 

    This was prepared using real pig's brains in a traditionally manner by a non-Native origin European man living in Canada who is now Lakota. This is the only hand-painted brain tanned hide we have like this.

    This is a great artistic piece. The hide has short hair and is a nice size, with shades of browns throughout. The mane has short hair and the backside is hand painted with horses and buffalo. This hide has a few small holes. The backing is flexible.

    This buffalo hide came from a ranch-raised Canadian buffalo that was raised for food. The buffalo was not killed just for the hide.

    A U.S. Fish and Wildlife export permit is required for all shipments outside of the USA.

    Q: How much does it cost to ship a buffalo to me?

    A: Where do you live. We need your shipping address in order to provide a quote.

    Q: Do the buffalo hides have a smell to them?

    A: All fur products will have some smell. There is only a slight smell to the buffalo. We have a lot of moth balls in our warehouse, so the hides may have a slight aroma for a few days until they air out.

    Q: Can I return the hide if I don't like it?

    A: Of course. All we ask is that you let us know within five days of receipt that you are not happy with the hide. You pay shipping and insurance both ways. We will refund your payment when the hide arrives in our warehouse in the same condition as when it left.

    Q: Can I use the hides as a rug or on a couch?

    A: Yes. The hides do not have a hollow hair. Unlike reindeer or other members of the deer family with hollow hair, buffalo hair does not fall out if you walk on it or sit on it. We cannot guarantee that no hair will ever fall out, but we have never seen extensive shedding or problems with these skins.

    Q: How do I clean my hide?

    A: The best way to clean a hide is to have a furrier drum this with special chemicals for the fur trade. This usually requires shipping it somewhere and can be expensive. Most people find that beating the hides outside helps to remove dirt. You can use a wool cleaner for small areas (just dampen the area, do not soak the skin). Do not put this skin in a larger washing machine because they are not designed to handle this.

    Q: Where do the buffalo hides come from?

    A: Most hides come from buffalo ranches. The animals are raised for meat. The hides are a by-product of the food industry.

    Q: Can we ship in bulk?

    A: Yes. We can ship up to 40 hides at a time using a sturdy crate as seen below.
