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.
OSTRICH is a bird twice the size of emu. It has a quill, the most valuable part of its skin, which is much bigger and spread apart than emu follicle. This quill however is only found in a small area of the skin. Ostrich birds are also farmed in much the same way as emus, and their by-products – meat, hide and feathers, are in great demand worldwide. Ostrich leather is substantially thicker than emu leather, very durable and it is used on a great variety of products.
