Why kangaroo leather?
Kangaroo is one of the strongest leathers available which means it is ideal for laser engraving. When split into thinner substances kangaroo retains considerably more of the original tensile strength of the unsplit leather than does calf. When split to 20% of original thickness kangaroo retains between 30 and 60% of the tensile strength of the unsplit hide. Calf split to 20% of original thickness, on the other hand, retains only 14% of original strength.
Our kangaroo leather comes from Australia. Environmentally kangaroos are a more friendly livestock option than introduced sheep and cattle. The Australian kangaroo industry produces a range of products from animals harvested from the wild under strict government controlled Management Plans. These ensure the harvest is sustainable and humane. A wide cross section of Australian ecologists support the kangaroo industry as being both sustainable and environmentally wise.
