Let your reindeer skin seating pad dry thoroughly if damp. If the reindeer skin is kept dry, it will last for years. Reindeer skin treated with silicone may start shedding hair and smelling bad if not dried properly after use. You should never store your reindeer skin in a plastic bag or in other airtight containers as the condensation may cause damage to it.
What is the difference between a reindeer skin treated with silicone and an untreated one?
Up here in the north, a traditionally dried reindeer skin is stretched and hung inside out on a wall, and then used as is. This method is the traditional Sámi way of drying skins and is still used today. However, this way of drying reindeer skin leaves the skin quite strong smelling and rigid, and easily shedding hair. A skin that has been treated with silicone is softer, easier to roll up, and has a milder smell. You could say it smells as much of reindeer as sheepskin smells of sheep.
