|Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q's)
Q. Are your products made from real exotic leather?
A. YES. We don’t sell imitations. All products are made from the exotic leather they are advertised as.
Q. Can I get my item in different dimensions or options not available on the website?
A. We only offer what is on the website. New products and options will be added to website when we feel they are sustainable.
Q. Do you sell ostrich leather scraps?
A. Not at this time, although we plan to sell them in the future.
Q. How do the product colors match other exotic leather colors of the same name?
A. Keep in mind that every hide is unique. If you need to match something make sure you are willing to accept a little color deviation from your item and ours. Keep in mind that belts and wallets are separated from each other and from foot wear by several feet so a little color deviation won’t be noticeable. Also, there will be some difference in color between our items and the Ferrini items.
