One does not have to go far back into one’s family tree to find ancestor’s who wore skins.   Each traditional culture records their own unique tradition of tanning for providing optimal protection from the elements of their ancestral lands.  Indeed as our first shelter, suitable and adequate clothing is often the foremost priority for any survival living situation.

Our Backyard Buckskin Workshops demonstrate traditional tanning methods with emulsified fats and oils so that you can use all-natural materials that are both readily accessible and sensitive to the natural environment.
