Leather Wholesale: Main Suppliers

Often we are faced with the following question: "Where can I get leather from?"

If we want to buy leather wholesale, basically, there are three possibilities to choose from:

  1. We can go directly to the tanneries that offer this service, even if this option is the least advantageous, since, within the tanneries' warehouses it will be possible to buy only the leather available at that time, therefore we will be faced with a smaller choice of leatherhigher prices and with a minimum order quantity.

  2. The second option for those who want to buy wholesale leather hides is the traditional channel of wholesale warehouses. At these dealers it is possible to find a greater variety compared to the tanneries and often the minimum orders are lower but this channel suffers from large limits and critical issues too. These are mainly linked to the areas of logistics, to the lead times of order fulfillment and to problems of organization nature that the market is no longer willing to accept.

  3. Finally, the third option is represented by the innovative online channel: Buyleatheronline is a company specialized in the wholesale of leather hides, fully finished or crust, which is aimed at all those who wish to purchase leather or that are looking for materials with the qualitative characteristics of "Made in Italy" at competitive prices, immediate availability and without a minimum order quantity.
