We try to useUSA materials when ever we can... These are a few of our favorites along with Aussie kangaroo!
We recommend Ray Holes Rawhide Cream  
It's a light non-greasy dressing for the up-keep of rawhide and soft leathers.
 We send a sample with every order. .. 
Great on deer and elk leathers!

The natural qualities of the leathers we use 
 when used for braiding

Leather needs a very special quality to keep its strength when it is cut into thin thongs. For braiding we only use deer, elk or kangaroo which all have multi directional fibers  and keep its strength when cut thin.  

 Deer Leather is the softest of the soft with a little stretch. Stronger than cowhide when cut thin and has a luxurious feel.  Our favorite leather! 

A rugged leather, elk as soft as deer and much thicker, great for heavier use.  

Kangaroo Leather is not as soft but one of the strongest  when cut as thin lace.

The stampede strings arrived and I love them! I make a conscious effort to buy things made in the good old USA and it's even nicer when I can give my business to folks like you who handcraft their wares. You can bet you will hear from me again....I have another hat that needs stampede strings too! So, until then take care and thanks! Sincerely, Lisa 

 It arrived today! It is sooo beautiful. Thank you so much. I've already put all my keys on the new one and am using it. I love it. Thanks for getting it to me so quickly. I am showing it to all my friends and family and letting them know where I got it from. ;-) Thanks again, Marybeth 

 got it today and it is absolutely beautiful!!!! Thank you verymuch.
I've received the stampede strings and they are absolutely perfect!  They are EXACTLY what I was looking for and I am very, very happy with them.  A gift from my husband, so we're both happy!  Thanks so much for the great job.

Just received the second set and they are beautiful!!!  The color is absolutely perfect and I can't believe how soft the deer skin braid work is.
