Seeking Animal Hides (Cranford, NJ)

Seeking recently removed, unprocessed hides from calves 1 year or younger, or deer, goat, and sheep of any age to make traditional parchment.

These hides can be excess from butchery, livestock, game, etc. -- I'm particularly interested in making use of parts of an animal that may go to waste otherwise.

I’m a graduate student interested in hide work for the purpose of researching historically Jewish craft and early book arts. I’d like to use this parchment toward the creation of Jewish ritual objects (ie: mezuzot), along with personal art and research projects.

Also interested in the backstrap and tendon/ligament from leg/heel of the animal to use for sinew thread.

Willing to work out trades and payment on an individual basis. Can arrange pickup, but drop-off preferred. Based in Cranford, NJ.
