Welcome To Mermaid Leather

Australia’s only fish and shark leather professional … born in the Golden Outback of Western Australia.

From the ocean and wilderness estuaries to style houses, Mermaid Leather produces special, aesthetically appealing and strong fish and shark leather. Designers throughout Australia have accepted the fragile pattern of fish leather for its soft sensuous texture yet robust strength.

Established in 1989 in the beautiful seaside Golden Outback town of Esperance, Western Australia, two local fishermen saw a need to recycle skins from the fish processing food market. This eco-friendly viewpoint and sustainable outlook is the anchor behind Mermaid’s family run organisation that prides itself on its exclusive handmade fish leather.

Visitors to Esperance can enjoy an unwinded see to our studio enhanced by a multimedia discussion to find the interesting process of tanning wild captured and farmed Barramundi, Snapper, Groper and Shark. Bigger groups need to book beforehand for a customised tour of the factory for a very little charge.

Our Mermaid Leather studio showcases quality bags, wallets and leather accessories made under contract by Australian designers. We likewise produce a variety of inexpensive fish leather presents and mementos in our studio workshop. We invite all Australian and International wholesale queries for our fish and shark leather products, offering exclusivity for select consumers.

About Mermaid Leather

Mermaid Leather’s simple beginnings were motivated by professional fishermen, R.W. Bubb and Andrew MacDermott in 1989 who saw a need to utilise wasted skins from the fish processing market. Tanning fish skins was unprecedented at the time. Through extensive research and development over a 4 year duration Mermaid Leather finally achieved a strong, aesthetically appealing and soothing to touch quality fish leather that could be utilised in a range of special methods.

In 1994 Mermaid Leather became totally commercial by purchasing industrial tanning drums and a plating maker for its ending up work. This increased its prospective to tanning countless fish skins in a single year. Andrew’s sibling David joined the fish tanning force in 1997 assuming the role of tannery manager. Designers throughout Australia accepted this new interesting quality leather while larger contracts for wholesale leather emerged.

Over the last few years demand from the retail sector has prompted this family run organisation to develop a collection of special wallets and bags. Influenced by the spectacular colours of the Golden Outback region of Esperance, Western Australia, they have successfully combined fish and kangaroo leather to create a modern yet timeless design collection for critical consumers throughout Australia and overseas.

Mermaid Leather prides itself on being the only commercial tannery in Australia that specialises in quality fish leather. It’s special, its eco-friendly and embodies the essence of the Golden Outback.
