Ostrich: Its future as an exotic leather

27 October 2009

All the talk about the current economic situation tends to be a good reason to succumb to chronic depression and the more you talk about it the worse it gets. Recently some smart guy said: “Never allow a crisis to go to waste”, which challenges us to think positively about our industry and, in particular, ostrich leather.

In contemplating the current market, we certainly aren't in a uniquely bad situation, but there are some days when you're forced to wonder whether it could get any worse. Several practical thoughts go through your mind if clients are pushed to purchase and they are just not up to it.

One of the questions that you ask yourself is whether the customers will change their purchasing patterns to such an extent that exotic leather goods and footwear will no longer form part of their shopping list in the near future. Is it a far-fetched idea? My personal opinion is that there is no chance that exotic leather generally will become 'obsolete', but there is good evidence in the industry that one of the other exotic leathers may.
