Sustainable Bison Leather from Rogue Industries

Why do we use American Bison to make our leather goods? Because raising bison is good for the planet.

In pre-historic times, North America used to support as many as sixty million bison, from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico. Why so many? Because the natural environment supported these bison herds, and they in turn benefitted the ecosystems they inhabited. Bison grazing patterns are gentle enough to promote plant growth and biodiversity, and many native species have co-evolved with bison over time.

Bison’s natural activities lead to the regeneration of healthy and productive soils, which in turn supports healthy grasslands. These grasslands are themselves a key tool in carbon sequestration. Like forests, healthy grasslands soak up carbon.  Restoring and protecting carbon-capturing grassland is an important tool in the fight against climate change.

Not only are bison good for the natural environment, if you choose to eat meat, they’re good for you too. Bison is leaner than fish, and has a surprising amount of omega-3’s. While they’re raised for meat, we’re interested in the byproduct – the bison hides we use to make leather goods.

Our Bison Leather Production is Sustainable

Our American Bison leather is chrome free, vegetable tanned and comes from a Gold Rated tannery.

Is it possible to purchase Bison leather to do some of my own leather work.

It would be relatively so no worries about competition.
