You can’t get much more exotic than small leather luxury goods made from kangaroo hide. However, what may surprise you is that we don’t use kangaroo leather solely because of its luxury. Instead, all of our men’s accessories are made with it for all of the other benefits it brings to your style. So, if you’re ready to get the jump on men’s fashion – pardon the pun – here’s what you need to know.
Kangaroo hide is naturally extremely slim and thin, which allows us to create small leather luxury goods that are lightweight and breathable. As such, it’s often recognized for being the lightest leather available within leather men’s accessories.
In addition to being the lightest leather available, kangaroo leather is also hailed for being the strongest due to its unique fiber structure which has next to zero fat content. In fact, kangaroo leather is known for being 10 times the tensile strength of cowhide and 50% stronger than goatskin.
Since the strength of kangaroo leather being at an all-time high, this also means that small leather luxury goods created from it offer ultimate durability. This is a result of the unique fiber structure that makes kangaroo hide incredibly strong. Add in the extra-strengthening elements we use to create our slim men’s accessories, such as CX6 carbon fiber, Dyneema fibers that are 15 times stronger than steel, and titanium, you have a product that will last.
Most animal hides have sweat glands, muscles, elastic levels, oh my. However, kangaroo skin doesn’t have contain sweat glands or erector pili muscles and even the elastic is uniformly distributed throughout the skin. As a result, we don’t have to navigate through these “roadblocks” to provide dapper accessories for men. In other words, we don’t have to destroy the hide to make it something useful. We use the leather as is which also allows for the following benefit…
Due to kangaroo leather being naturally thin with extreme strength, there’s no need for heavy splitting and shaving which is a common practice used for other raw materials. As a result, all of the natural markings are left on the leather for an absolutely show-stopping, dapper and raw style that you simply can’t get from anything else.
An added bonus to using kangaroo leatherto craft our collection of small leather luxury accessories is how great it feels! Not only is the fabric breathable but it’s also extremely soft to the touch. Now, you may not think that matters in a wallet, card holder or other types of men’s accessories, but compare generic accessories to kangaroo leather accessories, and you’ll never look back.
Put all of that together and it’s no surprise that kangaroo leather is known for its one-of-a-kind fiber structure. While other hides often contain fibers in a weaving pattern, kangaroo fibers have a unique orientation of fiber bundles that run parallel to the skin surface. It’s unlike anything out there available on the market, offering lightweight, breathable accessories that are equally stylish, strong and durable. It’s like an oxymoron.
To enhance the benefits of kangaroo leather (as if you need more), we treat our small luxury leather goods with Packer Leathers innovative technologies which allow your men’s accessories to be water repellent and abrasion resistant, which an extra dose of ultra-strength and breathable elements.
