    The real deal. Nice clear rawhide and very well trimmed (i.e., straight).

    This is exactly what I was looking for. Quality looks good, price is excellent, and the shipping was prompt. Thank you!

    Paper thin. Completely useless for any drum that requires any sort of tension. Probably fine for decorative purposes.

    I needed rawhide lace for a special project. Montana Leather was responsive in delivering my order. Unfortunately, it is not quite what I needed. I would definitely order from them again when the need arises.

    Haven’t used it yet, but it looks like it’s going to be great. I expect to order again sometime this summer. Thank You.

    I was surprised with the prompt delivery of the rawhide. It is very uniform and the price is great. I gave a four star review, instead of five, only because I haven’t used it yet. I am sure this won’t be my last order. Thank you.

    pretty disappointed, rawhide was weak and broken once laced up. called the store to ask for more info, maybe i didn’t handle it correctly.. was told “no one handles rawhide here so we don’t know” pretty disappointing experience and definitely a last

    Hey Jackson! I’m sorry to hear the rawhide lace wasn’t to your liking. Rawhide can be tricky to work with, but first of all you need to have good quality product, and if your rawhide lace is easily tearing, you may have a bad spool we need to replace (which we’d be happy to do!). Secondly, the rawhide lace needs to be thoroughly cased, or soaked with water, before you start bending and tightening it. Lastly, once the lace is taught, you have to make sure it isn’t too tight, which is something that comes with experience like so many other things in leather craft. If you have questions or need to start a return, please email or call us.

    Happy to have found this product. Why didn’t using rawhide dawn on me 5 decades ago? I do wish the thickness was consistent throughout the bundle I received.

    Nice strand cut well and strong. Using it for the belly of this postillion whip. For reenactments.

    Using the rawhide strands for the belly of a postillion crop for driving a team pulling reinactment canons.

Q & A

Would you be able to do an order of 1 inch wide cow raw hide lace instead of 1/2 inch wide? Would you be able to go more than 50 feet too like 65-70 feet? Sonny Doney asked on February 10, 2023

Hey Sonny! We do not offer 1" spools or anything more than selection already on the website here. If you want custom sized lace, the only way I can offer it to you is by offering a side of cow rawhide, which you can then cut to your liking.

Does your rawhide lacing need soaking before use? Terry Hall asked on January 18, 2023

Yes it does.

Do you sell custom cut rawhide lacing? I'm looking for 3/8" wide with a medium thickness that's not paper-thin nor full grain to repair an 80 year old camel saddle. Kokopelli372 asked on November 21, 2022

Hello! We do not sell custom cut rawhide lacing unfortunately. We sell only these options you see on this page.
