Our Process

Step 1: It Starts In The Jungle

  1. Our process starts by buying peccary skins only obtained from sustainable subsistence hunting. These skins usually come from certificated centers like peccaries hatcheries or from subsistence hunting methods. 
  2. All skins come with CITES Certificate by SERFOR (the national forest and wildlife authority in Peru). Perú is the only country that has CITES authorization for peccary leather trade
  3. The skins are classified, dried and sent by air freight to our production plant in Arequipa. 

 

 

Step 2: The Tanning Process

  1. We weight the skins in a scale before every tanning process. 
  2. The skins are left soaking in chemicals to remove the maximum hair before the tanning. 
  3. The skins are put in the drums to do the tanning process. 
  4. After the tanning process, the skins are put through the shaving machine to get the wanted thickness.
  5. When the skins get out of the shaving machine hair is still on them, which is removed by hand by our specialists making the skins smooth. 
  6. Lastly, the skins are put to dry and sent to Lima for Classifications, packing and shipping.

 

 

Step 3: Selection And Confection Process

  1. For leather:

    1. Once the leather is in Lima they are Classified in grades I, II, III and IV for the wholesale and put in mixes of 10%, 20%, 30% and 40%  respectively. Whether is in Chrome Crust or Colored. All peccary leather come with CITES certification.
