Our products

Our small tannery is not designed for producing large batches of the same product. Consequently we are able to take the skins and hides, making a range of unique leathers, rugs etc.

In this section and related links, we provide examples of the main types of product but we are able to adapt our process to meet your needs. Increasingly our customers are showing us that our flexible approach is one that is unique, certainly in Scotland. Our products have been used for high end book binding, traditional clothing including sporrans, unique rugs, sheaths used by bladesmiths, coracles etc.

If you have a special product that you need, please don’t hesitate in contacting us.
