Kangaroo leather is one of the strongest leather available. It is much stronger than cow or goat hide, and is well known for it’s durability. No matter how thin or how light, this leather maintains its strength, showcasing it’s versatility. It is used in football shoes and motorbike outfits. The collagen fibres in kangaroo leather lie parallel to the skin and does not include sweat glands. This gives the leather it’s strength.
It is illegal to hunt kangaroos in Australia and as such, the government has a strict control on the harvesting of kangaroo meat and leather to ensure that sustainability is continued.
We source this leather locally in Queensland, Australia to be included for our leather bags.
