FALL INTO THE LAP OF AFRICAN LUXURY

Welcome to Tau Leather

Experience real leather, in the lap of African luxury.

Tau Leather manufactures a limited range of luxury handcrafted goods designed for the modern country lifestyle. Our products are created by expert South African leather workers in a sunny studio situated in the capital Pretoria. Craftsmanship of the highest quality is evident in every Tau leather product made exclusively from locally sourced materials, now available to the US market. Tau is the Sotho word for ‘Lion’. Like this mighty beast, our leather products are strong and durable with a definite majestic quality. We are a small team (with Tau hearts) who create products that last for generations. We take pride in working with absolute precision and dedication throughout each step of the process, from the design and manufacturing, to the delivery of each product to our customers. Like the regal lion that roams the African plains, our unique oil-colored leather products are designed to grow more beautiful with age, gaining character even as it wears and ages.  

AFRICAN LUXURY AVAILABLE IN ALL 50 STATES.

Our process

All our products are handmade with great care, from cutting and sewing to finishing the oil-colored leather and hammering the rivets, using only the highest quality of South African cow hide. Our leather is meant to last, to age and change as it wears and gains character, while offering luxurious ease-of-use.​

When staring at an old lion strolling through the Serengeti plains, you’ll know with certainty that some things are made to age with beauty, while still commanding respect.

Made in Africa, by Africans. Uplifting a continent.

We believe in our craftsmanship and offer free returns if you are not 100% satisfied with our product. However, our natural leather products will age over time, which may include marks due to wear, which is to be expected and admired.
