What do you like most about the leather industry?
Leather is a forever product that if you take care of it in the right way it will bring your much joy and happiness. Being a natural product and being a animal lover it gives me peace to know that every bit was taken well care of at the end of the day. Selling a product of high quality, good prices and seeing the products being made at the end is for sure a work satisfactory feeling.

What is your favourite colour leather?
Whiskey (not the drink hahaha), all the buffed leathers
