Here at Basically Bush we are continually exploring ways to improve our possum skin dressing and tanning processes.
We believe that we produce some of the best alum dressed, chrome tanned and dyed Brush-tail possum skins in the country.
Please note: We only Commission Tan Possum Skins
Prices for Alum Dressed Skins are as follows: (Excludes GST)
Less than 10 skins $18 each
10 -50 skins $15.50 each
Over 50 skins $14.00 each
Alum dressing is the most common method used for preserving skins, and results in a white, pliable pelt.
Skins should be chrome tanned if they are to be subject to excessive heat or moisture. This process will incur an additional $2.50 per skin.
We can commission dye skins. This service will incur an additional $4.50 per skin.
We have the plant and the expertise not only to produce soft strong leather, but also to finish the fur that will bring out its full potential of plushness and luxury that fur truly is.
Our Commission Tanning service to hunters enables them to have their own very special possum skins dressed or tanned.
