Why Leather?


Leather work, one of the oldest arts in the world, today, still maintains its tradition of production which was yielded through centuries in Anatolia, the motherland of the world's oldest civilizations. 

For the people who started the civilization history of which we are a part today, covering themselves was undoubtedly one of the most important need, and leather was a natural clothing material. That's why the history of leather reflects the history of humans. 

Leather appeared as an extremely important raw material requied in every area in the civilizations of the regions extended from Mediterranean basin, Egypt, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, to Iran and Middle Asia. All strong and useful clothes, boots, mount/load/carriage animal cars' leather works, whips and bags were always made of leather. 
The history of leather denotes more versatile and distinct meanings for us as the people living in these lands. Because in Anatolia, leather production goes back to very old times in history and the main clans who migrated to these lands were among the communities who put the leather to the centre of their lives and even are experts on processing the leather.
