Oryx (Gemsbok) Upholstery Leather

Oryx (Gemsbok) is a strikingly elegant and massive antelope type, and are of course, also typically Southern African. The Oryx is renowned for its long, straight, slender horns (therefore its nickname “spear antelope”).

Oryx skins are very popular for upholstery purposes, although very exclusive and difficult to find. Expect a uniquely African and robust look with natural scratches, scars, and marks from the rustic bush habitat.

Did you know?

The Oryx is adapted to live in hot, dry areas where most animals cannot, while they can withstand temperatures up to 45 degrees Celsius.

Please note

The natural, authentic character of every skin is unique; therefore, our colour samples only aim to provide an indication and are not absolute. Unfortunately, we cannot replace or refund any material after it has been cut.

Please contact our offices to arrange a viewing or post of samples.
