Hello! My name is Michelle. Matt & I create by hand, the brain tan buckskin and the beautiful custom garment that it becomes. I’ve been making my own clothes since I was a young girl. For the past ten years, I’ve also been making fitted garments for other people. Brain tan buckskin is my favorite fabric to work with. It allows for more freedom in design that any other material, offering me the perfect medium to make custom fitted garments. What is most important to me is that your clothing feels good on your body and is just how you envisioned it, if not better!
We started making and using braintan because we were looking for a way to make our own material. Mostly so that we could be more self-sufficient. Deerskins were being discarded in our area every fall so we decided to put them to good use. Now we use them for everything: clothes, bags, shoes, and more. We love it and hope you will too.
