Reindeer Hides are synonymous with BBQ Huts, primarily because they were used by the nomadic Sámi people to create the walls and roofs for their traditional nomadic huts. The Sámi people are reindeer herders originating from the fells of Sweden, Norway and spreading to Finland and Russia in rhythm with the seasons. Their reindeer provide them with meat, milk and raw materials for clothes and tools, and are still important today to the Sámi peoples existence and culture. Their lifestyle ensures that reindeer hides are an Eco-Friendly and sustainable product, and every Reindeer hide sold benefits the Sami people.
