Buckskin which comes from deer and antelope, is one of my favorite leathers. It is truly beautiful in coats, vests, dresses, purses, as well as home interior products too numerous to mention.
Other than it can be a bit heavy if one isn't careful, its drape is so hard to beat in garments. Our native ancestors used it for their garments, and cleaned it by washing it on rocks in the river. It still can be washed but one has to shape it after, and with linings, and so forth it would take a very talented person to do a good job.
Because buckskin stretches quite a bit, we like to take the stretch out of it before making the garment. The weight and suppleness of this leather, lets it drape better than most leathers. But maybe we are just spoiled. When we do our twisted fringe in this leather it just can't be beat for beauty. Possibly that is why it is so coveted for footstools, bedspreads, swags, and pillows, just to name a few.
