About Us

Leather Craftsman

Tannery Representatives

Bashaw Leathers represents some of the world's top leather makers for many years and sell their leather directly to our customers. These tanneries are internationally known and are exhibitors at major leather exhibitions in Europe and the far east where we would normally meet every year to discuss new articles, trends, and colours for the current season. 

How We Work

Once we know your requirements, we can suggest the appropriate leather articles to meet your needs from the tanneries we represent and we place the order. The Tanneries monitor their production to ensure quality control and on-time delivery. Once the order is ready, we provide you with an invoice, packing list, and banking information so that payment can be easily made.


Once payment is received and the goods are on their way, we provide the shipping documents and delivery schedule. We also send you all the necessary import documentation for customs clearance.


We earn a commission on sales for the Tanneries we represent. There is no charge to our customers for our services. 

We ask that when you sample from us, you also buy your production quantities from our sources. Depending on the supplier, leathers are paid for in advance, prior to shipping. Your sampling requirements can be sent anywhere you request. You may want to order your leather and have it shipped directly from the Tannery to your factory. This will ensure your maker uses the same leather you sampled.

You may want to only buy the finished product that is ready to sell to retail. In this case, you will probably request your factory to buy the leather. As long as they buy from our original source, we can still request our commission. In these cases, we will need to have your factory contact information so we can advise the tannery to expect orders. If we do the promotional sales work, we want to safeguard so we get our commission.
