About Us

We constantly handle skins of four tradable species of crocodiles in the world and North American Alligators, and we have a 10% share in the worldwide market. Constant supply of high quality glazing and matt finished crocodile leathers is made possible through our highly skilled contracted tanneries in Japan and overseas. We can also accommodate requests from customers for other ways of special finishing. Not only crocodiles, but we also carry more than 100 shades of colors of Klein Karoo Ostrich leathers in stock.
