Red dragonhide detail.png

Red dragonhide (also called Red d'hide by tanners) is a 100% drop from red dragons when they die. The hide can be tanned to become red dragon leather by paying a tanner or by using the Tan Leather lunar spell. A tanner will charge 20 coins for each hide, or 45 in Canifis. Tanners can be found in Al Kharid, the Ranging Guild, Canifis, Forthos Dungeon, and the Crafting Guild.

Players can then make red dragonhide armour from red dragon leather via the Crafting skill if they have a high enough level.
