    Our ambition is to help our clients increase the value of their product – by delivering hides of a quality that’s second to none.

    Our hides are unique due to their Nordic origin. A mild climate and the highest standards of animal welfare deliver the properties that premium brands are looking for in their leather.

    To this we add proud craftsmanship, cultivated through generations, to turn rawhides into the functional products which our customers refine into finished, high-end goods.

    But we take quality even further.

    Traceability from farm to finished product

    We want our customers to know the full story of the product they buy. So we laser mark each hide with a unique number that holds all the information about the hide. This allows customers to trace the origin of the hide – right back to the birth of the animal.

    We also want to contribute to building a sustainable future. By turning the biproduct of an existing industry into a new product – leaving the smallest footprint in the process – we apply the circular mindset that our industry and the planet depend on.

    The quality of our products is matched by the integrity of our culture. We deliver on our promise. And we treat the people we work with and the environment we depend on with the highest respect.

    That’s how we nurture dedication in our team and build long-lasting relationships with our customers. And that’s how we run a strong and sustainable business.
