Hand-Crafted Braintan Buckskin

      There is nothing in the world quite like the look and especially the feel of genuine hand-crafted braintan buckskin clothing.

      When you wear braintan buckskin clothing you connect with the ancients who wore the buckskins every day of their lives for thousands of generations. Genuine braintan simply feels real in a way that nothing else can compare.

      For those who want to tan their own hides we have plenty of books, videos and tools for either the Wet-Scrape and Dry-Scrape methods. And for those of you who lack either the time or the will to tan your own, we now keep quality braintan buckskin in stock.

      Braintan is great for clothes for primitive living, mountain man rendezvous and Native American dress and beadwork.
