Welcome to
Seminole Fur Dressing

Seminole Fur Dressing has been in business since 1982. Over the years we have taken great pride in testing and improving new and innovating methods of superior fur dressing for the taxidermy trade. Our tan with Lutan-F and other quality tanning oils provides each skin with a supple feel, optimum stretch and ease of handling. We feel confident that our time tested tanning is superior to any formula or product available on the market and that trial of our service will satisfy the most exacting taxidermist.

We invite you to give us a try and become one of our satisfied customers.

OUR CONDITIONS OF ACCEPTANCE:
There are many variables which can affect the quality of a finished skin.
These include knowledge of proper handling, temperature extremes, and the overall condition of the animal when it is taken.
Despite the fact that we use great care and expertise on every skin we receive,
we do not guarantee the results of any dressing.

We do not accept hides for (hair off) buckskin tanning.

They should then be salted with a fine grade salt and allowed to drain
for several days on an angled rack. A second salting should be done after the skins have drained
and then hung to dry. DO NOT SHIP DAMP WET SKINS.
