Just moved to Toronto from the US recently and have been looking for a source for exotic leathers, specifically alligator/croc/python. Many online retailers from the US will not ship to Canada unless you place a large order due to all the paperwork involved.

Does anyone know of an exotic leather supplier already in Canada, or of a supplier overseas who will deal in small quantities?

Thanks in advance.

Perfect Leather says on their website that they carry snake. Perhaps if you give them a call you can see about the other exotics you were looking for.

I too have been looking, and as far as I know there is no lizard or croc/gator available from Canadian suppliers.

Cheers,

Pefect Leather says on their website that they carry caimen, which sounds like gator to me. :cowboy:

Was just in Tandy's in Mississauga this past week, and they have a number of small gator hides on special right now, also a lot of snake. But OMG, it's EXPENSIVE!

If you have to buy from them, best thing to do is show them you have a business license, and then you will get wholesale pricing.

Lonsdale Leather in Vancouver carries a selection of exotic leathers.

Well, it won't help if you want to look at it before you buy, but a recent thread talks about renting a mailbox across the border in the US and going across to pick it up and clear customs.  Another Canadian said that if he goes for at least 48 hours he can bring back $800 worth duty free.
