Parchment has been used in the music field for centuries in anything from drum and banjo heads to sound hole roses and finger rests. The beautiful tones it produces are unrivaled and music enthusiasts wholeheartedly cherish its sound, and its strength, durability, and light weight make it the exceptional choice for traditionalists and modern music makers alike.
All of our hides come from North America, with the majority coming directly from farms and farmers. We pride ourselves in offering traceable sourcing from farms that are working to reduce CO2 emissions, improve animal welfare, and promote better agricultural practices.
Our leather is vegetable tanned, a traditional tanning method utilizing plant extracts as the primary tanning component. Compared to chrome tanning (found in most modern tanneries), our veg-tan is done without potentially toxic heavy metals while still producing a durable, long-lasting leather that will age beautifully.
The hides we use for parchment come from animals that have died naturally or been raised for food. All of our hides come from North America, with the majority from local farms and hunters. Vegetable leather tanning is a traditional and environmentally sound process, taking approximately 60 days to complete. While the chrome tanning many other tanneries use takes only a few days, it uses carcinogenic chemicals and creates earth-harming waste.
We are committed to traceability in our materials, so we are working toward creating a process that allows our customers to know where our hides have come from and be confident that all of the processing was done sustainably from start to finish.
Whether you are shopping for raw materials or custom designs, you can count on us for responsible production methods as well as unrivaled quality.
