About Leather

About Leather

Leather is a seductive and durable natural product that can be used for many diverse purposes. Van Oosterum Leather supplies leather of all sorts, sizes and finishes to the orthopedic shoe manufacturer, the orthopedic instrument manufacturer, the manufacturer of saddlery, the leather goods industry, the custom made shoes manufacturer, the organ builder etc. 

We only supply the highest quality leather. The quality of leather will depend on various factors, of which the most important ones are:

  • The kind of animal and the age of the animal;
  • The climate in which the animal has lived; 
  • The way the leather has been tanned (vegetable / chrome);  
  • Which part of the animal skin has been used;
  • The way the leather has been dyed and finished.

Depending on the end-product you envision, Van Oosterum Leather can advise you as to which is the best type of leather suited to your purpose. We are happy to answer any questions about our products or the different types of leather we provide.

Why real leather?

Leather is not fabricated, it has grown like that. A natural product, with all its characteristics and nuances. As with many other natural products, leather becomes more beautiful with the years. Folds will appear, just like differences in color and the leather will constantly change its character. This constant metamorphosis highlights the natural origin of the leather.
