A bleached rawhide always adds a cleaner look to drums, parfleches and sheaths. Our bleached commercial rawhide surface is the optimal palette for earth paints. An artists' work will always show up better on a bleached hide. Our half hide is approximately 9-12 sf. It is the perfect weight for drums, parfleches, bonnet cases, sheaths, etc. Bleached commercial rawhide is also available in full sides (see related items below).
