Reindeer Skin or hide as it’s also called is originating from the Sami people, the natives of the North. Reindeer provide meat, milk and materials for clothes and tools and are still important to the Sami people’s culture and existence today. It’s not only a eco-friendly and sustainable product -but also a highly decorative one.
My husbands grandfather was a Norwegian Sami, and we have inherited a Reindeer Skin from him. The quality is so great that it still, generations later, looks new. Draped over a contemporary chair, it’s makes a wonderful warm addition to any modern home.
