Our Product Range

We make products to customers specifications and to fit into their product lines. While designs are often provided by the customers, it is a matter of pride for us that many of the best selling models in our customers product lines have been completely designed in-house by us for them.

You will see different product lines here, made from various speciality leathers, each with its own unique properties and beauty. Unique and at the same time with a common thread running through them all : Meticulously crafted with pride and skill, all these bags reflect a devotion to quality and workmanship rarely found in todays mass produced articles. Craftsmanship combining the skills and experience of tradition with the precision of todays technology. Not a blind adherence to the old methods nor mindlessly applying mass production technology to fine leather accessory production.

All these categories are made in a variety of product concepts and leathers.

What we do

LeatherHunte is particularly known for its range and quality of travel bags, office bags, handbags, backpacks and accessories.

From the leathers and other inputs we use, to the products we make, we hope you will appreciate our ongoing commitment to our unique tradition.

For the professional buyers in the industry, we present ourselves as a complete source:

  • Starting from your new leather/product development and sample order programme to trial and full production runs, we will make a special range of leather goods to meet your specifications.
  • We will undertake short and small production runs too for you, to meet your special requirements, exhibition collections, salesmen sampling, etc..
  • We will do your private labeling and branding on each product, as required and authorized by you.

Our Leathers

Our leather bags and other accessories are made in a range of specially tanned leathers, in different varieties and finishes. Some of the more popular among them are :

  • Water Buffalo Calf Vegetable-tanned Aniline Leathers.
  • Cow and Water Buffalo Oil Pull up Leathers.
  • Water Buffalo Shrunken Grain Aniline
  • Cow Waxy Drum Dyed Leathers.
  • Cow Waxy Milled Leathers.
  • Rich Dyed Satin Leathers.
  • Cow Semi-aniline softy leathers.
  • 100% Vegetable-tanned Cow and Water Buffalo Leathers.
  • Crocodile grain printed leathers.
  • Vegetable-tanned Analine & Semi-analine Sheep and Goat Leathers.

For each kind of leather, we choose the appropriate raw material and origin to get the right tannage, substance and finish.

The emphasis in all our leathers is to maintain the natural look and grain, With use and age, the appeal of these leathers improves, as each product develops its own sheen, patina and individual character.

R&D and Inputs

To meet the growing demand in several markets, we are also doing research to combine old tanning traditions with modern technology to produce leathers that meet present day performance requirements with lowered environmental impact :

  • Using better vegetable tanning techniques, the usage of chrome in several of our leathers has been reduced considerably.
  • The use of sulphides has been reduced, though not eliminated.
  • All our leathers are pcp, azo and benzedene free.

In addition to the leathers that we process, we also directly import specialty finished leathers from reputed tanners across the world. Some of them are:

  • 100% Vegetable-tanned shoulders from Italy.
  • Hand padded aniline finish leathers from Italy.
  • Special Water repellant leathers from Germany.
  • Finished Sheepskin Leathers from France.

We prefer to use 100 % cotton linings or cotton blends for the interiors of our bags. When specifically required by customers, we also develop and use other natural and man-made lining materials.

We have a select panel of reputed manufacturers in India, China, Hong Kong and Italy from whom we source the metal fittings for our bags. Various colors and finishes are possible, including chrome and nickel-free. We can also offer customized and specially developed fittings.

All our zips are also sourced from Internationally recognized manufacturers. Heavy Duty Metal, CFC Polyester and moulded vislon zips ranging in size from #10 to #03 are used, depending on the application and load-bearing requirements of the bag and application.


While a lot of the work is mechanized, our products are essentially hand crafted with care and attention to detail. The secret to our quality lies in the experience, judgment and skill of our trained master craftsmen.

Our Mission To develop and provide our buyers with a reliable range of quality products which they in turn can re-sell with confidence to their customers.

To the end-users, we promise quality products that will be their reliable companions for many years. We believe long-lasting products are environmentally better than ones with limited life cycles that repeatedly overload the recycling system. To ensure this quality and durability, we employ several processes and safeguards.

Some of these are:

  • Only high quality polyamide and polyester threads to international standards are used in our products.
  • Joints, overlaps and gusset openings are double stitched and sometimes given even three rows of stitching.
  • All load-bearing areas are reinforced internally and riveted if necessary.
  • All load-bearing rivets are further reinforced with an internal metal washer.
  • All shoulder straps are given an extra reinforcement tape for greater strength.
  • When we have a say, we make our shoulder straps without joints, giving them remarkable strength and reliability.
  • Pockets, openings etc. are given a box-stitch or triangle-stitch, to ensure they do not give way under constant use.
  • We use High tensile steel plates under handle fittings to give strength and to maintain shape.

Nuts & Bolts

Depending on our customers needs we offer a flexible range of commercial terms and also try our best to speed up our response to their requirements. For a general indication of the various terms, please see below. These are only for indicative purposes. We request you to please check with us for your specific requirement so we can give you a more accurate assessment and offer.

Lead Times

For sample development and regular production, we try to respond as fast as possible to the customers needs and urgency. Often, we develop, make and ship out samples within 48 hours. Sometimes, when the leather or other inputs have also to be newly developed, sample making takes additional time, some times weeks. In all cases, we keep the customers  fully informed of the sample development status.

In the case of new orders for bulk production, from the date of specification and design freeze we normally need a lead-time of 8-9 weeks to make the first shipment. Thereafter, we can maintain a regular shipment schedule as required by the customer. Once a customers designs, leather, fittings, etc. are standardised and inventoried, then subsequent lead times are much less and can come down to as low as 3-4 weeks.

Payment Terms

To begin with, all our international shipments are against advance payment / irrevocable letters of credit payable at sight, or CAD terms for very reputable organisations with a high credit rating.

As the rapport and business relationship grows, we subsequently offer our regular customers mutually agreed  credit terms against usance LCs of reputable banks.

Packaging & Logistics

Our product packaging for wholesale customers is tailor made to their specific requirements. For bulk shipments of the bags, most customers ask us only for individual polythene, polypropylene or paper bag and master carton packing. On request we can provide D2 packing etc. We do not use DMF based anti-fungal agents in our packing.

We can develop various kinds of special  packing for small and large leather goods, according to customers’ requirements. These have included individual retail consumer packing with full colour offset printing, screen printing and gold foiling.

Depending on the customers choice and the shipment volumes, we use both international air-freight and ocean freight modes.

Our Clientele

The comprehensive nature of our product range and capabilities helps us to meet the needs of a wide variety of customers and clients. Our customers today have a very diverse profile, ranging from international brands and manufacturers themselves, to mega department stores, designers and speciality store chains. Many multi-national corporations and business houses also buy their business gift and promotions requirements from us. We currently export almost our entire production to customers in the USA, Canada, Spain, Germany, France, U.K., Finland and some other countries.

While our customers are diverse, the common feature to all is their focus on getting the best quality- reliably and consistently.

LeatherHuntes policy is to build such long-term relationships with buyers who want top quality products and services customized to their requirements. We value their confidence in us and believe it is a strong indication of the consistency of our quality and service. We look forward to continue serving our customers in the best way we can.
