... About Us ...

Mustering, Bogong High Plains

SKT Leather is a family business run by Sharron & George Taylor and was established  in 1990.Born from the need to source high quality gear for our own beef cattle enterprise we know what's expected of our gear in the often harsh environment in which it it used. It needs to be as tough as nails to last the distance in this wide brown land. We understand what it takes to create the highest quality article and use this knowledge to select the very best Australian hides, then craft each item in the traditional manner to exacting standards, encompassing the true spirit of the Australian bush.
We have been supplying retail outlets in Australia with plaited whips, belts and horse gear for many years and now our web site gives everyone the opportunity to buy directly from us. There are no bells and whistles on this site, just pictures of us at work and play; all these images are our own. The people who answer your query are the ones who make the gear and you won't find a better value for money range anywhere.

Bringing the cattle home

Starting a youngster with SKT Leather gear We make this gear, we use it, and we know it works! Because of this we are prepared to stand behind every article we make; and are prepared to fully refund the purchase price for any item returned in original condition. We are committed to satisfied customers. Trading by the standards of honesty and integrity, we will do our best to provide you with the exact article for your needs. 


We have also crafted whips which have been donated to help fund cancer research, the most recent being a pink whip for the Australian Stockman's' Hall of Fame, North East Victorian "Pink Ribbon Ride" in October 2010. This whip is pictured below and was auctioned to help raise funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation.
