Soft, warm, natural reindeer hides, raised by Sámi reindeer herders in Finland, personally imported under appropriate US Fish and Wildlife permit regulations.  Suitable for use in crafting or as a beautiful addition to your home as is.  These hides are durable and expertly tanned. Creases in hair made during shipping will naturally disappear shortly after being unpacked. We personally use these while camping due to their amazing comfort and warmth.  You will receive the exact hide you choose.

CLOAK: cloaks are made to be easily converted back and forth from a throw hide to a cloak through the use of Chicago screw hardware. The strap is made of high quality oiled leather. If you would like any hide made into a cloak I am happy to oblige, just let me know before ordering so we can discuss it. 

In the year 98, Roman historian Tacitus writes about "strange people in Thule (Latin for the far north) who wear fur clothes, hunt reindeer and travel with skis". These people carry on their traditional lifestyle today, passing down knowledge from generation to generation as they have done for thousands of years. Reindeer herding remains the exclusive domain of Sámi in Finland.
