The South African Ostrich industry is a world leader in the farming, processing and manufacturing of ostrich related goods. The Oudtshoorn region (in the Western Cape) is considered the ostrich capitol of the world because ostrich farming as a commercial industry, started here over 150 years ago.
The local ostrich industry is therefore an export orientated industry with the lean meat being very popular world-wide due to its health benefits as a red meat. The beautiful ostrich feathers are very fashionable and used extensively on international cat-walks as well as being exported to Rio for the annual carnival and of course to Las Vegas for the showgirls.
South African ostrich leather is much sought after by discerning customers who value style; exclusivity and individuality, making this lovely leather the natural material of choice for manufacturers of exotic luxury goods.
The uniquely natural look and feel of South African ostrich leather has established an impeccable reputation among the international fashion leaders of the world. Fashionable garments and accessories aside, South African ostrich leather has also carved a niche in luxury automotive upholstery and bespoke gorgeous leather furniture. These products utilise decades of knowledge and skills incorporated into tanned skins for exquisite finished articles. Ostrich Leather is unusually strong and scuff resistant whilst remaining durable and soft. Hollywood’s red carpet is often shown graced by the glitterati of the day carrying immaculate ostrich leather handbags.
Safari Ostrich Farm boasts a beautiful shop with over 80 styles of ostrich handbags using only first grade ostrich skins. Ostrich purses and wallets will last a lifetime and only get better with age. Ostrich leather belts and accessories are also available in a wide range.
