These Reindeer are farmed in a herding style in Scandinavia and the venison is sold in Europe and surrounding regions.
Reindeer leather is also a very important product for the region and their skins are a secondary product of the meat industry and they are not available in large quantities. These reindeer skins are very sought after and some colours are rare.
Deer hairs are hollow and therefore more fragile than a cowhide or other animal skins. This is why they are best used in a very low traffic area on a floor, draped over a bed, chair, ottoman or sofa, and they look great hung on the wall.
If they are walked on frequently they will shed hair over time - this is perfectly normal.
Some reindeer skins show tiny round marks on the leather side, these are tick marks (small burrowing insects).
These small tick marks can not be seen from the beautiful hairy front side of the reindeer skin.
