    You can try some reconditioning oil on it. And maybe work it. But if it's too far gone,(dry rotten) then I think you have a no good hide. More info on what the hide condition is would help more on determining if it's no good.

    has been tanned by a place in town here back then , an on the couch ever sense then spent some time on the floor [ got wet there an dried out ]
    no idea how long it was wet , SID
