Antelope skin facts

In antelope the skin should be supple, although the hair tends to be stiff and flat. The color is usually light brown to gray, depending on whether the antelope is from Africa or America. Because of the stiffness and flatness of the hair, the hair may tend to rub off easily.

As a result, leather may be used for edging to protect sleeves, pockets, collars, etc., from friction. Antelope is used in coats, jackets, vests, and accessories. It is not a durable fur if worn steadily. At the same time, it’s inexpensive and attractive for casual wear.

It is hard to find good quality antelope skin products, but http://www.fursource.com/ seems great.
