Ombré is the blending of one color hue to another.  These leather colors are a premium custom leather and have a small surcharge, per strand.  This surcharge only applies to the ombre strands over the quantity of 1 in your lead or grooming loop.  There is no surcharge for just one strand.

The pictured leathers are examples only.


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.

Care Instructions

Leather Care:

Included with each show lead order you'll find a container of leather conditioner. Use sparingly, as needed.  For more information on how to care for leather visit Caring for your leather.

Glass Beads Care:

We use only kiln annealed glass beads and those which have the proper thickness for the size of hole. This ensures their strength and integrity are optimal. You do not have to be overly cautious but it does not mean unbreakable. 

Take care of your glass as you would any glass item. Store your lead in the bag it came in or in a cloth bag and clean glass with a damp cloth if needed. Leather conditioner is not for use on glass beads or their settings.
