Yes, a true historical symbol of the United States, the Bison joins the Bald Eagle, the national symbol since 1782, as Americas first and ONLY National Mammal. Not only could it add the Old West to your living room-but could double as the aphrodisiac your bedroom always longed for. Many also believe there is Special Medicine in Bison robes, as if there is a unique spirit within the layers of leather and hair. Respect comes so naturally with these animals-no matter your origin.Here is your chance to own what was once the soul of our entire Nations peoples. There are two types of bison. After tanning literally thousands over the years, there really is no comparison between the two. I own and solely operate a small custom Bison Tannery out of Northwest Montana. I have been tanning for over 20 years, and Bison are my specialty. Yellowstone Bison have thicker-more dense leather and much cleaner hair than domestic bison. When I tan these robes, I can't help but notice the Uniqueness in each pelt. Every one is truly different. It only makes sense, they must be physically stronger and more enduring of the conditions.
These animals are free roaming-and in no way domestic. Grizzly Bears preying upon their calves in the spring, Wolves all the time, boiling Geysers, Tourists:, and the deep snow of winter ensure that these robes have incredible hair. Many also think the Yellowstone blood line is the purest in the world. When it comes to tanning, many never think about it, but you want a "fresh" dressing on your robe. I actually finish these robes after the sale, just to ensure that you are getting a brand new/never touched/used product!
You wouldn't want to cuddle in a strangers blankets would you? I care for each one as if it was going on my child's bed. This robe was harvested near the end of January from a small yearling bull, 95-100% prime silky juvenile hair.
I had planned to trim the edges off this blanket-only using the center section for a car seat cover shape due to the amount of skinning holes. After seeing the piece in its entirety-I had to leave it whole-despite the unsewn holes. Classic Yellowstone color variations-more striking blonde than most I see-with nice dark edges to really create contrast with the lighter hump area. My apologies- the sun wasn't cooperating today and the pictures make it look caramel.The young super soft silky calf hair stretches from neck to rump-and is truly soft unlike adult bison hair. This Blanket has been fully shampooed and tumbled in oak sawdust.
Just staged into the final process today-ready for a new home!! It measures 64"wide by 68"long(base of neck)which is around 30'sq ft total-smaller sized-fits many applications ergonomically. The leather on this bull turned out a very traditional lighter golden shade- with great veining/spackle, and is soft and supple with nice suede.
Most wild Yellowstone robes you see will have numerous defects. This bull has numerous blemishes in his hair-but most are conceiled from the thick hair-honestly doesn't detract much from his appearance.Most notable defects- he does have a 7" scar on his left ribs, a 7" hairless area at base of tail which extends down tail, and numerous areas of broken hair on rump-all very natural issues with wild bison. Guaranteed Wild and Brand New. Please look at pictures closely. This is to ensure that you are receiving the freshest tan and finish available.
The moment you pay-I start the final tumbling/shampooing/and brushing process. The second it's finished-it goes into a box to you.Clean, New, and ready to be loved. Please allow 5 days for finishing. Also please notice the hide is untrimmed in pictures-bare minimum of edge and some holes will removed-it really cleans them up. Generally these animals are quickly skinned in the field by the hunter amidst snow storms and subzero temperatures. Cooling the meat is paramount, and skinning holes are very common. The meat comes first, as it should be. This robe has 15 or so large to small skinning holes-most along the edge of blanket-which have not been hand sewn. I did however take the time to sew around around 15 holes in the center please note largest was 13in center of spine-rest are only inch(s) If you decide you don't want to look at the holes you can trim them off like I was going to-your preference. Looks amazing all intact I felt. Perfect size for childs bed or to stuff in your backpack-very lightweight.
Lots and Lots of Time into this robe, the lost art of tanning cannot be acheived by Robots!! These robes have many uses, either for decoration or keeping you alive in a blizzard, there is something magical about owning one.
You can display this amongst the finest furniture in the most luxurious home, hang it over the banister in your rustic cabin, or roll it up and use it as a sleeping bag or emergency blanket to survive with. I always thought you would be one cool cat having one of my robes rolled up on the back of your Harley for a bed roll: In the winter months, I sleep with one as a top comforter on my bed. It seems to give me the most intense dreams when I sleep under it-honestly! (maybe because it's so warm). I also will never go another Montana winter without my bison seat cover in my truck-toasty and comfy!
Although a bit morbid, it seems like its drawing popularity with my customers-the idea of using the robe throughout your life and then utilizing the robe as a burial blanket. Brings light to a dark situation to imagine being wrapped up in such a magnificent blanket and placed in your casket. I offer a full buyback guarantee of all bison robes I sell. Instinctively-this is my only employment and I take it very seriously. Other Bison robes simply don't compare to Wild!
You will also notice I posted a pic of a genuine Yellowstone Bison Ear tag. One of a kind Robe, Tanned on the banks of the Flathead river, on the the Flathead Indian Reservation- Made in Montana by a Native Montanan... This is all that I do, and my Integrity and Respect show in my work! Feel free to ask any questions that you may have. Sometimes it doesn't cost a fortune to own something that will last forever.
