Clansman Goat

Unfortunately, we have had to discontinue our Clansman Goat range of leather. This is because the source of supply of the appropriate grade of Nigerian vegetable tanned goatskins has dried up. We still have stock in many of the standard shades, but when that is sold we will be unable to replace it.

Pentland Goat

Recent efforts have been directed towards creating a new leather with similar appearance and handling properties to Nigerian skins but based on the same Indian goatskins which we use in the production of most of our other goat leathers (including Chieftain). We are very pleased to announce that we have named this new leather PENTLAND goat: it has an assisted grain but in all other respects it is finished in the same way as Clansman.

This leather is made from Indian goatskins with a Nigerian effect assisted grain. The fully vegetable tanned leather is aniline dyed and is hand polished to give a very attractive two-tone finish, highlighting the grain normally associated with Nigerian goatskins.
