Taxidermy Accessory Items

Taxidermy accessory items may include furniture, furnishings and bags to wearables like elephant hair bracelets, zebra skin hat bands and leopard lucky bone jewellery.

So after successfully hunting your elephant or Cape buffalo, have you thought about what you can with the skin and parts other than the tusks or skull and horns?

  • Most taxidermists can offer a range of miscellaneous items in addition to your mounted trophies.
  • Also if you have some of your skins leather-tanned (you can choose the colour) they can be sent to be made into many custom leather items like rifle slips, handbags, purses, wallets, boots etc.
  • The left elephant ear is shaped like the continent of Africa and can be made into a painted wall-hanging. Have your taxidermist tan the elephant ear, retaining the natural colour and shape - don't have it trimmed to have look more like Africa.
  • Just remember to keep the trophy parts you need in order to make items like these...

Elephant Hair Bracelets

Bracelets made from your own elephant tail hairs are popular keepsakes. These are usually made by the camp skinner who is a dab hand at knotting these bracelets. If not, ask for the hairs to be saved and your taxidermist can deal with it.
