Exotic Animal Hides
All hides used by Yoder Leather Company are legally obtained and approved by U.S. and foreign authorities. We never use any poached animal hides in any of our leather products. Exotic animal hides we sell that are regulated by CITES, such as elephant and hippopotamus are all CITES certified and verified during the import stage by our tanneries.
We understand and respect that some people disapprove of using certain animal hides to produce products for use by humans. However, we will continue to offer our legally obtained exotic animal hides as long as our customers request them.
You can learn more about CITES by visiting their site here.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have. However, rude or derogatory emails and phone calls will not be answered.
