For centuries leather has been used by the human race, for warmth, comfort and protection from the elements. In our modern society, we are surrounded by this natural material. We use it, wear it and admire it. It is important to point out however, that not all leathers are alike. They look and feel different, and they have different features and properties.
What distinguishes our leather products from other companies’ products is that apart from bovine leather, we specialise in Kangaroo, emu, crocodile and ostrich. Kangaroo and emu are Australian indigenous animals, with ostrich (a bird with South African origins), which has adapted to Australian climatic and physical conditions, and the Indo-Pacific Porosous crocodile, which is almost unique to Australia with its distinct identifiable scale. These crocodiles are found in Queensland and Northern Territory.
KANGAROOS are taken from the wild under a strict federally controlled culling program. Eastern Greys and Western Reds are the only two species culled under this program.
In their effort to survive in the rugged and harsh Australian environment, kangaroos have developed unique characteristics. Kangaroo leather, despite its lightness and softness, has extraordinary strength and durability. Its tight fibre structure makes it two to three times more durable than ordinary leathers. (*CSIRO comparative analysis has proven this conclusively).
NAVY PRINTED KANGAROO finish is achieved by embossing smooth kangaroo nappa leather. The effect is a uniform print, which makes kangaroo leather even more resistant to scratches and marks. Softness and lovely feel is not compromised by achieving this effect, making this finish ideal for wallets, handbags, accessories, journals, pens and other products.
KANGAROO NAPPA is a smooth kangaroo leather finish. Some natural leather grain may be visible (present) and no one skin is exactly the same. It is a light, soft material yet incredibly durable, making it ideal for a wide range of products. This beautiful material is used to make our belts, wallets, handbags, pens, accessories, journals and other products.ANTIQUE KANGAROO NAPPA is a unique textured kangaroo leather which maintains all the features of this extraordinary material (softness, lightness and strength), while at the same time offering a look which is rusticky and Australiana. Our wallets, handbags, journals, pens and other products look superb in this contrasty, grainy, warm material.
