Ellis is next to the furnace room, north of the bank.

Hard leather is used to train Crafting, and it is always in demand. Because Hard leather must be tanned into leather before it can be crafted, tanning the hides in bulk can be profitable.

To create Hard leather, Cowhides must be taken to a tanner. Ellis, in Al-Kharid, is the quickest tanner, and there are no requirements to use him. Withdraw 27 cowhides from the bank south of the tanner and 3 coins for each hide you want to tan. Run north into Ellis's building and right-click Trade Ellis. Tan them all, and run back to the bank. Each run takes approximately 25 seconds while running, and 45 seconds while walking. This averages out to about 2,800 hides tanned per hour, yet a player can tan around 2,000 hides every hour without the use of energy or Stamina potions.
