How to Get Leather in Stranded Deep

Before crafting leather, you need to obtain rawhide, which can be skinned off of boars and sharks. You can find tips on how to kill sharks in this guide.

After you get a piece of rawhide, you need to craft a tanning rack. Here’s the crafting recipe:

  • 4x Lashing
