"Home of the Spirit Hide"
In 1964, David Blake, moved from his home in Havre, Montana to the beautiful Flathead Valley, where he pursued his dream of becoming an artist. David has been tanning hides and furs for over 20 years. As a former trapper, he learned the value of a well maintained fur.
After a brief process of experimenting and perfecting a new tanning process, David, was able to produce a hide that was not only functional for wear, but provided a great canvas to work his magic.
Seven years ago, David started sculpting elk, moose, deer and buffalo hides to produce some of the greatest pieces of artwork in history. Since then, he has purchased a small shop in Hungry Horse, Montana to display his wonderful creations. David has teamed up with local crafters, artisans, hunters, trappers and the like to bring you the most comprehensive selection of traditional 18th century fur trader and Native American clothing and implements.

"I have always enjoyed nature and wildlife since I was young. The scenes I create seem to flow, on the rawhide drums, shoulder blades, skulls and hides. So these beautiful scenes we enjoy so much can live on."
