The Yiddish work "roys" #general

Does anyone know what "roys" in Yiddish might be. I just found out that
my family name ROSE was originally something like it. The family was in
some way involved in leather working, maybe as leather merchants. We think
the term may have been the name for calf, leather, skin or something
similar.
