      We visited a tannery while we were in Devon. They worked with hair-on hides, rather than clean leather. Basically they allumn tawed them, but obviously they used slightly more modern concocsions. I think that they then worked oil into them to keep them supple.

      Good luck

      Greetings Everyone. I am thrilled to be included in this List. I am new not only to the SCA(less than a year)but to leather work as well. Currently my intrest lies in the actual tanning of leather and furs. I was wondering if anyone has any info on tanning period furs. I have managed to find info on leather but not fur pelts except that they were used. I am looking specifically for the process used. Any ideas on where to find this info is greatly appreciated!
