American white-tailed deer live in large areas or preserves, are free-roaming and not constrained. The deerskins are suitable for smooth or nappa leather dressing, the tanning is chrome tannage, with aniline-based water-repellent finish (not pigmented). Approx. 0.9 to 1.1 mm thick and with a soft, silicone-based dressing, this leather is ideally suited for gloves and clothing exposed to hard-wearing conditions. The skins are small-pored, when finished and dressed as described above they have low moisture and water absorbency and produce a decidedly soft crumpled, durable glove.
