Austanners produce finished leather using Australian cattle hides (by- product from the beef industry). Cow hides are the staple raw material for most tanneries. Cow hide is versatile in its end use and richly available in Australia.
Strong and durable, cow hides have been used for centuries to produce leather for just about every end use.
Cow hides are used in shoes, boots, handbags, upholstery, and various sporting goods including footballs and cricket balls.,
