The kangaroo is one of the most wild & free of animals in our environment, roaming these lands at will. With increased numbers meaning the over grazing of farmland causing starvation of the kangaroos and livestock, culling practices have been put into place to keep numbers at bay. I chose to work with this uniquely Australian, fine yet strong leather as I know it is not factory farmed. The preservation of our beautiful earth and minimisation of waste is what initially inspired the smaller items in my leather craft range. To be able to use as much of my materials as possible has become a rewarding challenge as a designer… finding new ways to utilise this resource while showcasing it’s characteristics is how a lot of my small items in my collection were born.
After working with kangaroo leather offcuts for many years I have fallen in love with its quality, strength and lightness… so it was only fitting that the first product I introduce in my new WILD HIDE range be created from full kangaroo leather skins, allowing me to create offcuts of my own to feed back into my RESCUED AND REPURPOSED range.
ABOUT THE WALLETS:
These wallets are meticulously handcrafted using full grain kangaroo leather, which I source from an Australian owned tannery that has been run by same family for 6 generations. The tannery specialises in tanning kangaroo skins and creating kangaroo lacing which is where I also source my offcuts from. Thy are sewn on industrial machines using heavy weight thread. The lacing work on each wallet is individually prepared with each and every hole hand punched, then the lacing detail is methodically hand threaded. As with all leather products the leather will soften and develop its own beautiful character with use. These are individually crafted with much love and passion for quality craftsmanship and uniqueness, no two wallets will be exactly the same.
Please allow 10 business days for the production of wallets. This is also dependant on stock levels of leather.
