Genuine Ostrich Leather
Ostrich leather, distinguished by its pattern of quill sockets is durable, flexible and soft to touch.
Ostriches produce the strongest commercially available leather in the world making it an ideal working material for the manufacture of most leather goods. Hides average 13 - 15 sq ft. The average price is $500.00.
Grading Our Ostriches are farm raised and free from defects in the diamond area. You can expect large cuttings free from defects.
According to internationally accepted grading methods, grading depends upon the number of quarters in which defects can be found within the central "diamond" area. A defect can be a hole, scratch, loose scab, a healed wound or bacterial damage but must be less than 40 mm x 40 mm in size.
We carry only Premium hides - no visible defects in any of the four quarters but may have a few defects in the surrounding skin.
