Our Tanning Process
We use only BASF® products from Germany and our process is designed by specialist BASF® tanning technicians.
We strictly adhere to our own practice of hand-shaving each hide, ensuring that no hide is damaged in the process. For complicated and sensitive hides, we opt for a paddle bath instead of the traditional tanning bin. This process eliminates the potential risk of hair-slip.
We FULLY GUARANTEE the quality of our tanned hides as we control each aspect of the process.
Since Dieter Ochsenbein started Highveld Taxidermists in 1981, the family business has grown to be one of the largest taxidermy firms in the world. With an in-house manikin library of over 700 custom crafted moulds, we are proud to offer you bespoke taxidermy of the highest quality.
