I might have sent the newsletter out before I have these fully listed.. Writing the description and putting the measurements in here right now. I should be finished shortly. :)
Have you always wanted that amazing Bison (American buffalo) winter hide to have on the bed or couch, for those cold cold winter nights, or just to hang on the wall in the cabin?
A uniquely American tradition, tanned bison hide has been used to warm and decorate homes for thousands of years. During the winter the robe is at its densest and most lustrous and make for the best hides.
Our winter bison hides display a range of rich and deep hues, from dark coffee brown to golden caramel. The fur is soft and thick, making it ideal as rug or throw to chase away the cold. Next to the hearth, for the bed or on the back of a chair, add texture and warmth to any room.
These are prime winter bison hides, tanned by one of the best ever tanners in the USA.

Craft Grade Buffalo Hide
Every bison hide we choose has its own story; the natural differences found in the brands, rub marks, and scars are unique to each animal. We are often asked the best practices for caring for these one of a kind pieces. It’s easy, we promise! Here are some product care tips and tricks to ensure that your buffalo hide maintains all the uniqueness and elements that you love.
Storing Your Hide
We recommend keeping your hide outside of direct sunlight. Too much sun can damage or discolor the hair. The hide should be kept loose – compressing the piece could also cause damage. Never use plastic containers to store your hide — these can cause the hide to sweat itself and ruin the hide.
Cleaning and Care
Your hide is made for everyday use. If your piece takes a spill, spot clean as much of the liquid as you can. Then, simply use a clean damp cloth to blot the area. Cleaning solutions are too harsh for the fur, so avoid using them or saturating the piece in water. If your hide becomes matted, a heavy metal comb can be used to brush it out. We recommend a Scotch Comb for this.
If you are using your hide as a rug, we recommend vacuuming at least once a week. To avoid getting the hair tangled, we typically use the vacuum hose instead of the vacuum brush. If you prefer your hide as a wall hanging, bedspread, wrap, or throw, vacuum as needed.
