    Crafting has many functions, from glass blowing to leather crafting. Here are the things that you can craft in Runescape using different types of leather in hides that you can get throughout the map. Remember to start out with the beginner items and build up your crafting skill until you are able to craft all the times in this article. You’ll need to go to Rimmington and Al-Kharid to get a needle and thread so that you can begin crafting with the leather and hide.

    Crafting with Cowhide

    Cowhide comes from any cow that you kill in the game. You take this hide and visit a tanner in Al-Kharid to turn the hide into a piece of leather. The leather is then either sold (but won’t help your crafting skill at that point), or you can use it to make the following tailoring recipes. You can make an item studded by smithing out some steel studs and adding those studs to the leather pieces after you’ve created the item you’d like studded.

    • Leather gloves – This requires a crafting skill level of 1 and will give you 13.75 in experience after you craft the item.
