At Tasman Leathers of New Zealand, we specialise in crafting premium leathers for various industries across the world. With over 70 years of experience in the leather industry, we take pride in our ability to manufacture the highest quality products that meet the unique needs of our customers.



Tasman leathers are meticulously crafted using only the finest raw materials available. We work with carefully selected New Zealand suppliers to ensure that we use the best quality hides. Our suppliers are chosen based on their commitment to ethical and sustainable practices, and we only work with those who meet our stringent standards.


Tasman’s upholstery leather collection includes full-grain and corrected-grain leathers, with finishes that range from glossy to matte. Thes leathers are available in a variety of colours and can be completely customised depending on client-specific requirements. We enhance the natural beauty of leather with high-level product engineering: our wax and oil finishes are plated, milled and ironed to bring out the depth and unique character of our New Zealand hides.


Tasman Leathers takes pride in offering a comprehensive range of footwear leathers that cater to the varying needs of the footwear industry. Our range of leathers not only meets the demands of current fashion trends but transcends them, offering timeless styles that remain in demand year after year.

In addition, we have an extensive range of leathers for industrial footwear, with exceptional leathers that are strong and durable. For those working in wet conditions, our Pro-tec range is specifically designed to keep feet dry. All of our industrial footwear leathers are designed to meet EN/ISO 20345:2011 and AS/NZS 2210.3:2009 Australasian Specification for Safety Footwear standards, ensuring they are tough enough to take whatever the workplace throws at them.


We take pride in Tasman’s aviation leather, which is designed to meet the stringent safety standards required in the aviation industry. Our aviation leather is certified to meet FAR/CS-25.853(a) and has passed a 12-second vertical burn test, making it safe and reliable for use in aircraft. Tasman aviation leather is also resistant to abrasion, making it durable and long-lasting.

Tasman believe in the power of superior materials and innovative techniques to create leathers that are nothing short of exceptional. Our unwavering commitment to quality is reflected in every piece of leather we produce, from upholstery to footwear and aviation applications. Our team is driven by a passion for crafting leathers that are not only beautiful but also safe, durable and sustainable. We take great pride in our ability to deliver leather that truly meets the needs of our discerning customers. Simply put at Tasman, we don’t just make leather, we make leather beautifully.
