WHAT IS TRADITIONAL BRAIN / SMOKE TANNING?Traditional tanning is when animal hides are preserved using a lecithin and smoke, leaving a durable and soft leather material that is water resistant and washable.

They are preserved in a non toxic way using natural materials and elements.Traditionally tanned hides are completely washable, non toxic, and essentially a carbon neutral product that you can enjoy for decades.

Smoking finished hides will set the tan on the final day and discussion on care and cleaning, along with tips on sewing and crafting with tanned furs will round out this the weekend.Upon completetion you will leave with your own tanned fur and feeling confident in starting your journey into tanning at home, and step by step instructions you can refer to later.
