About Mermaid Leather

Mermaid Leather's simple starts were motivated by professional anglers, R.W. Bubb and Andrew MacDermott in 1989 who saw a need to utilise wasted skins from the fish processing industry. Tanning fish skins was unprecedented at the time. Through extensive research and development over a 4 year period Mermaid Leather lastly accomplished a strong, visually appealing and relaxing to touch quality fish leather that could be utilised in a variety of distinct ways.

In 1994 Mermaid Leather ended up being completely commercial by buying commercial tanning drums and a plating machine for its ending up work. This increased its possible to tanning countless fish skins in a single year. Andrew's bro David joined the fish tanning force in 1997 assuming the role of tannery manager. Designers throughout Australia embraced this brand-new interesting quality leather while larger contracts for wholesale leather emerged.

Recently demand from the retail sector has triggered this family run organisation to develop a collection of distinct wallets and bags. Inspired by the stunning colours of the Golden Outback area of Esperance, Western Australia, they have successfully integrated fish and kangaroo leather to produce a modern-day yet classic design collection for discerning consumers throughout Australia and overseas.
