We offer a contract skin tanning service to Hunters, Farmers or anyone who would like any sort of Animal skin tanned. Our factory is located in Invercargill, Southland. We process skins for individuals from all over New Zealand. With many years of tanning experience we professionally cure many types of skins ranging from Rabbits and Possums to Sheep, Calf, Deer, Goat, Tahr, Chamois, Pig and Cattle. They can make a great addition to any trophy room or as a center piece for interior designed homes. They can be washed or dry cleaned if necessary to ensure they stay looking fresh and attractive over the years. Our aim is to ensure the final result lives up to the customers’ expectations and that it is something they will admire for years to come.
To find out more about what is required after the initial skinning of the animal please go to our skin preparation page where you will find out how to ensure the raw skin arrives to us in the best condition possible.
We also process skins ourselves and offer them as individual skins well as manufactured skin products for purchase. Please see our Skins for sale page.
Hi Adam, Thanks a lot. I bought fur and leather from all over the world for this film ( the Hobbit). The skins you sourced and tanned for us were consistently and by far the best. I will be in touch again. Thanks again Emily, Costume buyer, June 2012
Animal skins are very popular with interior design and add that extra wow factor in many homes and businesses throughout New Zealand. We see it as using the whole animal in a sustainable way and one that captures our sense of closeness with the environment we live in here in New Zealand.
Cow hides have many uses such as floor rugs, wall hangings, furniture throws and ottomans. Cow skins are most popular as a floor mat or rug. They look great on polished concrete, tiles or wooden floors. Have a look at our photo gallery to see examples of these.
Calf skin cushions
Calf hides make great cushions or small throws, mats or rugs for your floor or over a chair. Black and white calf cushions seem to be very popular. We endeavor to have different variations in brown/white or tan/white as well as black/white. Obviously these skins can only be sourced at calving time in August every year so keep an eye on what we have available.
We offer natural white or colored sheep skin rugs and mats for sale. These skins are all individual in color and wool texture and look great beside your bed or on a chair.
Possum pelts make great throws, bedspreads and cushions. We make these to order. If you are looking for the ultimate in luxury look no further than a possum bedspread. You are also helping in the reduction of New Zealand’s number one pest!!
