*Extra $200 for Huge hides measuring over 2.4 metres form head to tail.
*Extra $300 for massive hides measuring over 2.6 metres form head to tail


Sheep $100 /skin
For best results it is preferred that sheepskins for tanning have wool no longer than 5cm ,and are from a coarse wool or crossbreed species of sheep. If the fleece is longer than this it can tend to knot up during processing. Also if there are debris such as seed heads, twigs etc in the wool they most likely will still be there at the end!!

The time taken to process you skin through the factory varies depending on workload ,but as a guideline it takes 4-5 weeks for everything apart from cow hides which take 8 weeks.

All prices include GST.

Prices for Alum Tanning for Taxidermy are available on enquiry.

Hi Adam, You've done a great job and even converted a dairy farmer to loving cow hides. Thank you so much and we will recommend you to everyone we know.

Hi Adam
The cow hide looks fantastic. We are really pleased with how it turned out.Thank you. Fraser said it was a charlois angus cross. It is on the darker end of the colour scale as they can be much lighter. I was worried about it being too brown but I think it is perfect.
Regards Sharon

Our cow hide arrived on Thursday and looks great!Thanks very much. We will definitely come back to you next time we have another fellow or tahr hide needing done in the family! Kind regards

Thank you so much for your professional tanning of our cowhide, it really means something to have one of the "girls" with us at our beach house in Coromandel. She just reminds us of how hard we've worked to get here and where we've come from.We are thrilled with the quality of your work.  Many thanks once again,Kind regards,

Hi Adam
I am very happy with the skins .Initially, I thought the cost was a bit high but on receiving the skins it was obvious you get what you pay for.
If anything, my skinning skills need some attention.
Will do more skins with you in the future and will recommend to others.

Hello Adam, The sheep skins you did for me ,met my expectations thank you, especially given the length of the wool, you did an amazing job. Family and friends have been overjoyed to the point of being speechless when I gifted them such beautiful luxuriously soft tanned fleeces. I am happy to be able to give organically home grown presents compliments of your excellent tanning. they are being used and enjoyed as chair covers for extra warmth and comfort as floor mats positioned in the room to show off their colour. Thank you .Mrs Denise Leota. August 2014

Adam. Sorry its take so long to send this note but earlier this year you did a cattle beast skin for me and this is to let you know that we are absolutely wrapped with it. Great job, looks fantastic and my wife is thrilled, thank you. Recommend you to anyone. Thanks again. Geoff B April 2014
