Welcome to Classic New Zealand 

We are a Sheepskin Tannery and Manufacturer based in Napier, New Zealand and have been producing the world’s softest sheepskins products since 1969.

Our Story.

We believe in a commitment to softness, purity and exceptional quality sheepskins.

We’ve been crafting quality sheepskins for over 50 years. It’s a tradition forged in the rugged plains of New Zealand and honed in our Napier facility. Our craft is executed with passion, honesty and an eye for detail.

Classic is defined "as a work of art of recognised value" and something ‘judged over time to be of the highest quality’.
These words define our products and our brand.

Pure, natural sheepskin
100% sourced from and made in pristine New Zealand.

Our Process

1.
Wash

Our hand-selected natural New Zealand lambskins
are thoroughly washed and cleaned.

2.
PRESERVE

Each lambskin is preserved using a salt/acid solution and cured with an organic, chrome-free white tanning solution.

3.
SOFTEN

For a smooth and supple touch, all lambskins are softened and conditioned
using ecologically-safe and formaldehyde-free products.

4.
PROTECT

We protect each lambskin with a barrier called Sanitized® to ensure no bacteria, fungi or odours develop. Finally, a wash with tea tree and lemon myrtle oils is used to further protect from bacteria and allergens.
