About Us

Dedication, experience and trust. For five generations we have been producing world class performance leathers.

In 1891 Joseph Packer, an English immigrant, opened a woolskin and leather tanning factory in Brisbane. Five generations later, Packer Leather is an internationally recognised performance leather specialist.

Joseph Packer excelled through tenacity and honest business principals. Over 100 years later, the Packer family continues to work with these values and subsequently Packer Leather has grown to be one of the industry leaders, worldwide, in high performance leather.

The company’s success is built on a foundation of expert leather knowledge with an ongoing focus on research and development and ensuring staff are continually trained to be leaders in their field, which in turn ensures the production of fit-for-purpose high performance leathers.

The Packer family is committed to the environment and continues to invest into the supply of a sustainable raw material and enhanced environmental processes and outcomes. We are working together to ensure Packer Leather will be here for generations to come.
