Tibet: Yaks - Meat and Raw Materials

Francis Tsang, Co-Founder of the Chrome Free Leather Alliance writes that we are not manufacturer of Yak Leather, we are porters of nature.

Domesticated Yaks are commonly home-slaughtered just before winter at a village or open slaughter site where semi-skilled Tibetans butcher the animals. Yak meat is then dried for later consumption.

Seidel Tanning Corp.’s goal is to ethically purchase and save as many raw Tibetan Yak hides as possible from each herder family without a landfill. Seidel Tanning strives to provide a personalized and unique Leather experience to our customers.
