Tanners are non-player characters who, for a price, will tan hides into leather; Cowhide, which becomes Leather or Hard leather, Snake hide, which becomes Snakeskin, and green, blue, red, black, and royal Dragonhide, which becomes Dragon leather of the same colour.

Players cannot tan hides themselves, unless they have access to the Make Leather spell, so tanners are very useful for players wishing to use the Crafting skill to make Ranged armour. While certain types of leather require a minimum crafting level to craft them, there is no minimum crafting level to use a tanner to tan the hides.

Tanners can be found in the following locations, marked with the tanning icon (Tannery map icon):

Three other NPCs also serve as tanners:

Similar to tanning hides into leather, Yak-hide can be cured into Cured yak-hide, which is used to craft Yak-hide armour. Thakkrad Sigmundson on Neitiznot (members only) can cure yak-hide but cannot tan other hides. Other tanners cannot cure yak-hide.
