How to Buy Exotic Leather
Buy Exotic Leather

You can be the only person at your workplace with a three-fold wallet--made from stingray leather. Or you might brand yourself as an adventurer with ostrich leather. Now you can buy exotic leather without getting swindled in an open market. Start looking like a well-traveled person by buying exotic leather from the confines of your home.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Decide what kind of exotic leather you want to buy. Select from the different types of exotic leather available, such as leather from crocodile, stingray, ostrich or shark.

  2. 2

    Make sure that the leather that you're interested in isn't on any sort of endangered species list. Also, make sure it's legal--in many countries, it's against the law to trade certain leather.

  3. 3

    Take "care and maintenance" into consideration when buying your leather products. Can you really keep up ostrich cowboy boots? They require some care when you wear them.

  4. 4

    Stay away from eel skin wallets. The properties of eel leather will demagnetize your credit cards.
