Kangaroo Leather is 'weight for weight' the strongest and lightest natural leather available. Kangaroo leather is the preferred leather exhibitors want for their leads. It is naturally thin, very soft and supple, while providing ultimate strength and durability. We braid over a Dacron core for added strength and to reduce stretch.
The leather we use is imported from Australia and is a product of their culling program. Derived from only 4 of the 53 species and from animals living in the wild, to ensure that no natural habitat is cleared and no detrimental impact on the kangaroos or their ecosystems is made. The leather used is a byproduct from the food industry and using it rather than discarding reduces environmental impact.
Australia's government oversight of this program ensures the most humane practices have been followed. Over 40 years of studies indicate this culling program has not harmed the species, but has instead helped it to thrive. With a current population well over 30 million the kangaroo is considered abundant and not endangered. Kangaroo leather is a renewable natural resource that is sustainable over long term and a green alternative to other leathers.
