About Mermaid Leather

Mermaid Leather’s humble beginnings were inspired by professional anglers, R.W. Bubb and Andrew MacDermott in 1989 who saw a need to use lost skins from the fish processing market. Tanning fish skins was unusual at the time. So through extensive research and development over a four year duration Mermaid Leather finally accomplished a strong, visually appealing and calming to touch quality fish leather that could be used in a variety of unique ways.

In 1994 Mermaid Leather ended up being totally commercial by acquiring commercial tanning drums and a plating device for its finishing work. Designers throughout Australia embraced this new exciting quality leather while bigger contracts for wholesale leather emerged.

Recently need from the retail sector has actually prompted this family run service to establish a collection of unique wallets and handbags. Inspired by the spectacular colours of the Golden Outback area of Esperance, Western Australia, they have effectively combined fish and kangaroo leather to create a modern-day yet traditional style collection for discerning consumers throughout Australia and overseas.

Mermaid Leather prides itself on being the only commercial tannery in Australia that specialises in quality fish leather. It’s unique, its environmentally friendly and embodies the essence of the Golden Outback.
