Why Leather?

All about our leather

In an economy where the consumer wants the most value for their money, leather delivers superior value. Many efforts have been made to create a synthetic material that is able to provide the multiple properties of leather but all efforts have proved unsuccessful. Due to these properties, leather is the preferred material for many areas of application, from daily used products to exclusive fashion items.

ETERNAL STYLE

Leather will always be a relevant material to use. A timeless classic, it will never go out of style. The high quality of leather in contrast to synthetic materials also adds a touch of luxury to your products.

RESILIENCE

A significant benefit of using leather is its immense longevity. Leather is extremely durable, especially when great care has gone in to its production. We know that great quality requires patience, so our leather can take up to 28 days in the tanning process; ensuring that it lives up to our customers’ standards.

STRENGTH

Leather is a strong material; able to hold a lot of weight, and will not break or tear under pressure as easily as synthetic products. This is what makes it so suitable for products such as bags, saddles and cricket balls.

SUPPLENESS

Contrary to what you may think, considering leather’s resilience and strength, it is in fact a very supple and flexible material. It allows you to be creative and mould it to suit your vision, which makes it an incredibly easy and pleasurable product to work with.

SUSTAINABILITY

Leather, being a wholly natural material, is a biodegradable product. The hides that we use to make the leather from are already a byproduct from surplus pieces from the abattoir. Furthermore, we ensure that extra steps are taken to recycle all additional waste we create in the tanning process. All of which help us, and our product to stay sustainable.
