Ostrich has distinctive pock-marked quills and a naturally “oily” texture that allows the skin to get softer and more supple over time. The skin is outstanding in its luxury appeal because of its unique look and versatile applications for garments, wall coverings, furniture, car interiors, handbags, cushions/motorcycle seats and more.
Over the years, we’ve worked directly with ostrich farmers and professional tanners in South Africa to make available the most extensive catalog of Ostrich colors available at the best prices. Tanning ostrich hide is a tricky process as each quill mark needs to be buffed correctly to prevent any holes or unintentional marks in the material; our U.S. revolving stock of ostrich maintains over 10,000 luxury grade ostrich skins in 75 colors and finishes.
Sizing for Ostrich Hides
All ostrich hides are standard priced by each individual hide. Most ostrich skins are approximately 16.5 sq ft of material, with an estimated 7 square foot of premium quill. Ensure that when purchasing ostrich that you allow your pattern to accommodate for the desired quill usage.
