KANGAROO LEATHER IS THE GREEN ALTERNATIVE TO OTHER LEATHERS OR SYNTHETIC MATERIALS.
Kangaroos are not farmed but harvested in the wild from a large, self-replenishing population. As a result no natural habitat is cleared for them. The harvest is strictly controlled by an Australian Government program that ensures no detrimental impact on the kangaroos or their ecosystems.
Of the 53 species of kangaroo only the four most common species may be harvested. Studies have shown no adverse effect on the population of these four species over the last 40 years. Kangaroo leather is a renewable natural resource that is sustainable over the long term.
Only a small proportion of the total kangaroo population is taken for the food industry, the leather is a recycled by-product that would otherwise end up as waste. With a current population well over 30 million the kangaroo is considered abundant and not endangered.
