About American Elk & Deer
Started in 2011 by John Sollo and Bill Kozakewich. American Elk & Deer primarily buys large quantities of raw animal hides and is then responsible for creating the best leather possible at the best wholesale rates we can offer. Our products include Deer, Elk, and Bison leather, proudly harvested and tanned in the USA.
Not only does American Elk & Deer proudly produce Deer, Elk and Bison leather of our own, we are also buyers and sellers of leather. Through the relationships we have cultivated with others in the industry, we often carry multiple types of Cow leather, as well as Sheep, Goat, Moose, Pig and more! Call or contact us below
Value & Quality
Leather is still one of the most sought after and longest lasting materials used today. It predates all other fabrics and with the proper level of care, will have an indefinite shelf life.
The tanning process itself is complex, with many steps and factors. At American Elk & Deer we stand behind the techniques and methods used in the process. Call or contact us below to learn more.
About Our Products
Deer skin leather is renowned for its luxuriously soft temper and pliability. It is ideal for any application from bags and gloves, to high end garments and accessories. Typically around 3.5 - 4 oz in weight, it is ideal for most manufacturing purposes. See below for catalog and color swatches.
Like deerskin, Elk leather also has a nice, soft temper and feel. With the added advantage of being much larger than deer, Elk is the perfect answer for both luxurious feel and ample footage. Typically around 4 - 4.5 oz in weight, it is ideal when extra durability is needed.
Bison leather is hands down the perfect combination of softness, durability, and strength. Available in both 4 oz weight and 8 oz weight, its perfect in almost any application. Comparable to cow leather, bison leather is usually an easy transition, and a great substitute. Truly the best of both worlds.
