Goatskins direct from Pakistan

These are mainly used for doumbeks, but heavy weight goat skins are also available for hoop drums and tie dying.

People sometimes ask me, "Are these animals raised humanely using cruelty free methods?"

Both the goat skins from Pakistan and Africa come from cultures for which goats are the main source of meat and milk. As such they are treated as valuable assets for a family, and are generally freely grazed. They aren't killed for their skin, generally for meat and ceremonial use...nearly every cultural event requires a goat be killed and eaten to verify the importance of the event. In my book this is humane..they are neither kept confined, made to suffer, or disrespected ...they are valuable parts of an agrarian culture and all parts are used.
