Anvil ethically sources all of its exotic leathers! These animals were not poached. We pride ourselves on making quality products and we're not about to soil that reputation by using sketchy, disreputable or downright illegal sources. We think these premium exotic leathers are absolutely stunning, and they're excellent to work with. Keep in mind, most of the listings here are VERY limited in quantity. We don't get much of these superb exotic leathers so we make sure we make the most efficient use of it as possible.
