What should be looked for when deciding to tan any type of animal skin.
Animal Skin Tanning.
Classic NZ specialises in the tanning and manufacturing of sheepskins. Throughout many years of experience this has evolved to all areas of animal skin tanning. We happily take skins from anywhere in New Zealand and courier them back to you.
The biggest evolution is our ability to tan and process Cow Hides. Our machinery and large processing power allows us to do bulk loads keeping the price down for you our customers. Cow Hides make a great feature piece for any home or a stunning unique gift.
With the large range of New Zealand farm and game animals Classic Sheepskins is now regularly tanning large amounts of all animal skins available in NZ. This includes; goat, deer, tahr, hare, possum, rabbit and wallaby. With the correct preparation trophy skins are becoming one of our more popular items. Deer skins; especially red deer and fallow deer tan brilliantly and are a great way to show off and impressive trophy. More easily obtained goat skins have a wide range of colours and are also popular especially with young hunters.
