|The buffalo leather is sold by the
hide. Each hide is marked with its size. The hides
average between 40 square feet and 55 square feet. We can
usually select either smaller or larger hides according to
your wishes. We will not, however, cut hides to measure or
select just the best hides.
These skins are full grain or top grain
leather. They are NOT just splits. The texture
is rougher than deerskin or moosehide. The skin also stretches
less than deerskin.
These are craft grade skins that have holes and/or
flaws. If you can work around these, this skin is for
you. The 5 to 6 ounce skins are strong and therefore ideal for making moccasins or other
crafts requiring a heavier leather.

American Bison (Bison bison) leather, not water buffalo
