Black dragon leather is used to train Crafting, and it is always in high demand. Because black dragonhide must be tanned into leather before it can be crafted, tanning the hides in bulk can be highly profitable.

Because the price difference between hides and leather can be fairly small, it is important to buy the hides for a low price and sell the leather for a high price; you can lose out on up to 50% of the profit if you are not patient. Test the profit by buying one black dragonhide and one black dragon leather. If the difference between the two is less than 200, it may be better to tan green, blue, red, or royal dragonhide instead.

To tan dragon leather with maximum efficiency, deploy a portable crafter near a bank or bank chest (for example, near the bank chest in Castle Wars), make a preset with 28 black dragonhide, and load it. Then right-click the crafter and choose Tan Leather. Additionally, you can use portable crafters on the one already deployed to increase its duration by five minutes per crafter. You can tan just over 2400 hides on one portable which gives 28800 hides per hour.
