Seeking Unprocessed Animal Hides (Iowa City)

Seeking recently removed, unprocessed hides from deer, goat, calf, or sheep (perhaps from livestock or game) to make traditional parchment.

I’m a graduate student at the University of Iowa 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 backstrap and tendon/ligament from leg/heel of the animal to use for making of sinew thread.

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