A non-native cannot possess a tanned or raw hide until it is altered by an AK native and made into a handicraft. Exporting the handicraft out of the United States is illegal without obtaining a CITES permit obtained by USFW. Which at this time the permit can cost up to $100 and can take up to six months to process. I apologize for not being able to sell outside the U.S.
SELLING ENDANGERED FURS TO YOUR STATE is LEGAL. Alaskan Natives, are exempt through the federal government, which allows us to sell our furs to any U.S. State. But depending on your state laws, it may be illegal to re-sale.

If either animal gets soiled, clean up is easy, as long as it's not chewing gum...opps. A slightly wet wash cloth with a tiny bit of dawn soap works well. Rub the soapy wash cloth over the spot then rinse the wash cloth and wipe the spot again till clean. Then hang to dry naturally. Keep fur away from heat at all times. If the otter gets wet, wait till it dries and a cat brush fluffs it back into shape. For the best insulation properties, keep clean and fluffy. As long as fabric is not involved with the garment, you can have a professional furrier legally clean it. If a professional won't clean it, contact me and I'll clean it for free as long as you pay postage send and receive.
