About

Thank you deer

In 2010, Gillian O'Flaherty fell in love with a Montana cowboy while on a vision quest of sorts with 3 friends and a 1983 Dodge Ram. This led to an unexpected move to Big Sky country and an apprenticeship with master leather clothier Elaine Snyder of Buckskin Clothier. For three years she learned the ins and outs of deerskin leather sourcing, history, patterning and care, as well as traditional construction methods and the art of fitting leather to the human body.

In 2013, Gillian began using these techniques to make supple, sturdy, decadent deerskin bags and Queen of Cups Hidecraft was born. Each hide is hand selected from the beautiful vegetable tanned deerskins from Pergamena Tannery in Hudson Valley, and hand sewn in a small one woman studio in the Berkshire mountains. Each piece is one of a kind, and seeks to combine modern streamlined shapes with rethought fringe and abstract bead work, and reflects a long and meticulous process that begins with a hunters journey and ends as a piece that will last a lifetime.
