ALDER - LEATHER SHEEPSKIN
  • ALDER - LEATHER SHEEPSKIN

    This is ALDER - A beautiful pure Icelandic sheepskin naturally tanned, organically reared and hand made sheepskin. The colours of the wool are exceptional multi colours of lush fawn, tan, cream, chocolate all twisted together in the most incredible formation of locks and the thickest wool coat ive ever felt! These colours are so rich and some of the best ive seen. The leather is soft and supple and is approx 140cm x 110cm.

     

    The kind of sheepskin you could get lost in and will be a hier loom for many years to come!

     

    This sheepskin would make the perfect fireside rug, within a yurt, tipi or shepherds hut. Also draped over the sofa, or perhaps by the bedside. I also have customers who use these for wild camping. They have also been used for horse saddle mats and cool motorbike seat covers!

     

    This is a traceable hide, ethically reared and not mass produced. It has been carefully cured, tanned, stretched and oiled by my own hands using traditional, ancient methods and no chemicals or machines. The sheepskin will also have a more tangible, aged and rustic look and feel to it as this is not a commercially produced product. I don't trim to the standard of commercial tanneries so they have a more natural shape to them. Some skinning holes are standard on most skins and its all part of the character and does not affect the hide or aesthetic. Some are repaired where possible.

     

    This is a rare and disappearing craft that I hope finds it’s way into your home!
