The Springbok is the National symbol of South Africa and the National Rugby team is nicknamed the "Springboks". The Springbok is not an endagered animal and there are currently approximately 2,5 million of these antelope in South Africa. There is a high demand for Springbok meat in Europe and in Africa and due to this demand Springbok is widely farmed in South Africa. Due to the demand for the Springbok the hide is a bi-product of this demand.

The culling of Springbok is strictly regulated and Leechi sources Springbok hides from a reputable supplier that adheres to these regulations.

Springbok hides are in high demand and it can be difficult to get good quality skins due to the demand but as a result of our good relationship with our supplier and our attention to detail and quality we can assure you that all our Springbok products are made from top quality Springbok hides.
