Is Buying Elephant Leather Legal?
When customers see that we offer this leather, they almost always ask us if it is legal. We are proud to report that we offer only ethically sourced products.
How Do You Get Ethically Sourced Leather?
There are countries where the elephant population is becoming overcrowded. Understandably, these large land mammals have a big influence on the environment around them. Without wise culling of these herds, their large numbers will endanger the diversity in their ecosystem. That is why the U.N.-sponsored Convention on International Trade in the Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) permits the sale and exportation of elephant hides.
Which Countries Allow Legal Exportation Of Elephant Hides?
At the current time, they are available for legal purchase in several African countries, including:
- South Africa
What Is The Texture Of Elephant Skin Leather?
Unless it is made from the smooth ear portion of the hide, the texture is dense and slightly bumpy. Its variety of neutral earth-tone colors is dotted with black accents, revealing the pores and wrinkles of the natural hide. This will give a timeless yet unique appearance to your pair of custom boots.
What About Durability?
This is one of the most durable options you can choose for your footwear. It is practically puncture-proof, making it ideal for work boots. People who work in areas populated by venomous snakes find elephant boots to be especially practical and protective.
