To get leather from hides in Manor Lords, you will need to build a Tannery. These buildings cost 4 Wood to make and are good to construct after all homeless settlers are housed and all crucial buildings are already built.

After the Tannery is up and running, assign workers to the building to begin producing leather. Hides will be carried from the Hunting Camp to the Tannery, where they will be converted and stored.

What Is Leather Used For in Manor Lords

One of the most important things about Leather is that it allows the opening of a clothing stall in the Market at an early point.

Should You Get Leather Before Flax?

Yes, you should focus on getting leather before flax Manor Lords. Flax is a crop grown in the Field that takes an entire season. In the first year, you won’t have enough population to maintain two fields. Players should grow wheat the first year, and use the excess hides from their Hunting Camp to fulfill fabric needs until Flax can be invested in with a second Field in the following year.
