Russian Reindeer Being Recovered from Shipwreck

Russian Reindeer Leather Accessories by G.J. Cleverley

In 1973, divers off England's Plymouth Sound discovered the wreck of an eighteenth century brigantine that sank in 1786 with a cargo of reindeer hides. They had been cured in baths of rye or oat flour and yeast, hand embossed with a varied cross-hatching before being soaked in wood liquor, hand curried and then soaked in seal oil and birch tan oil. This leather is literally a piece of history, and once it is gone, it is gone forever. Russian Reindeer is exclusive to G.J. Cleverley through their relationship with the Prince of Wales, and The Hanger Project is honored to exclusively offer Russian Reindeer online.

Every piece is handmade in Cleverley's bespoke workshop at The Royal Arcade in London. Should you wish to commission a bespoke accessory from Russian Reindeer or a pair of shoes, please contact Customer Service and we will be more than happy to assist you.
