Skull and horns process
At first all skulls and horns are subjected to a natural sun-drying process after which they are boiled and then cleaned. According to the time schedule, they are subjected to a Solution to ensure all possible bacteria are killed. During the next step they are bleached with another solution.
All skins are dipped in a pickled bath for a minimum of 48 hours. After this process all skins are subjected to a Salt Action for a continuous period of not less than 30 days.
Packing of Skulls
Each and every skull and/or horn is wrapped with “bubble wrap” to ensure that it gets maximum protection during transportation/shipment.
