Braintan Buffalo Robes, Classes, Articles, and Raw Skins

Scraping a bufflo hide for braintanning.

      There is nothing quite so comfortable and primal as wrapping up in an authentic braintan buffalo hide. On a camping trip, or at home on the bed or couch, a braintan buffalo robe is luxuriously warm and deeply comforting in a way that synthetic fabrics can never match. And braintanning a buffalo hide is an all natural process that can save a beautiful skin from going to waste.
