Karmine Leather is the premium leather good brand of Macro Group Australia, established in 2018.
After our success in kangaroo meat procession to the Australian and worldwide landscape, we decide to start Karmine Leather as a place to explore our love for the leather, using the kangaroo hides as a by-product of the leading business. The main customers of Macro Group enjoy our premium kangaroo meat in restaurants and home cooking. It makes them even more excited about this new brand to fully utilise and make the best of Australus to create a range of quality leather aprons and other luxury items for work and the home.
The Founder, Ray Borda, named the brand after his late mother, a keen seamstress who enjoyed cooking delicious but humble food for her family. Ray is one of five children and a natural entrepreneur who has pioneered the Australian kangaroo meat industry for over 30 years. He has spent years inventing, improving and forever exploring new business opportunities.
We hope you love our Australian made leather products, created by a small team of local craftspeople in our Adelaide workshop with love.
All of our products are made from sustainably and ethically sourced kangaroo leather.
Kangaroos are harvested using the most stringent ethical and environmentally sustainable processes that provide all Australians with superior, pure and ethical products. Kangaroos produce high-quality meat that is primarily used for food. The kangaroo leather is a by-product of the meat industry, ensuring nothing is wasted.
As kangaroos are truly free-roaming animals, the leather used in Karmine products has its own markings representing the wild animal’s life and making each product unique and individual, just like its owner. No two pieces are the same.
Kangaroo leather is the strongest and lightest natural leather available, making it comfortable and exceptionally durable. These characteristics and Karmine Leather’s attention to detail and quality craftsmanship, makes KL products truly unique and long-lasting.
