Silver Fern Farms Partnership with Tasman Leathers

Tasman Leathers began in 1953 as a family business. 

As one of the world’s only end-to-end leather processor, the company has the ability to control every variable in the process. 

Their leathers speak to their expertise and the meticulous care that goes into very stage of the production journey. 

Tasman Tanning leathers are predominantly used in the footwear, upholstery and aviation sectors - trusted by global brands such as Rockport, Steel Blue, Blundstone, DeWalt, Tessi and more. They work with boutique designers as well as large-scale manufacturers.

Tasman Tanning is built on a tradition of craftsmanship, rigorous quality control, innovation and a spirit of client partnership.

In proud partnership with Silver Fern Farms, Tasman Leathers has crafted an exclusive range of limited edition, highest grade, traceable, Net Carbon Zero sustainable leathers.

From beef cattle grass-fed 365 days of the year, GMO and antibiotic-free, these leathers are traceable to the farms from which they originated. 

The beauty of New Zealand leather lies in its story, its origin, and the journey that brings it to the most discerning fashion, footwear and furniture brands of the world.

One of the main reasons that New Zealand grown leather stands out in terms of durability is the nation's unique climatic conditions. New Zealand’s temperate climate, characterised by moderate temperatures and adequate rainfall, ensures that livestock are raised in optimal conditions. This nurturing environment leads to healthy livestock and

high-quality hides. When these hides undergo tanning and processing, the resultant leather retains exceptional strength and resilience, making it perfect for products that require long-lasting materials.
