These Hides are obtained and exported legally, in accordance with the Finnish Law and are not listed by the 'Convention of International Trade Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora'. The Hides sourced are a by-product of breeding sustainable herds of reindeer throughout parts of Finland, still very much a part of an accepted way of life in Northern Finland. The reindeer are farmed to provide meat, milk and raw materials for clothes and tools for the local inhabitants, with the hide being the final by-product, hence making the entire process an eco-friendly and sustainable practice. Rest assured the reindeer are not killed for the hides and if we didn't claim them, they would end up in land fill incinerated.ξ

Care:

To maximize the life of your beautiful hide, respect it for the beautiful item it is, minimise repeated, prolonged or heavy contact and it will reward you with many, many years of joy. Unlike cow hides, reindeer hifes are not as robust and we urge you not to use these in high traffic areas. A all hollow hair hides, the hair will break or come loose if repeatedly sat upon, walked upon or rubbed.

Give the Hide a good shake every week or so to remove any hairs that have come loose. These hides are a natural product and as such, you can expect some hair loss over time, as you expect from most all deep pile rugs. You may be somewhat alarmed at the hair loss, particularly during the first initial weeks after receiving your hide. Please don't worry as some hides take a period of time (sometimes up to a month) to acclimatise to different conditions, particularly if relocated to a warmer and/or drier climate.ξ
