Progressive Leathers Ltd was established in 2003 and acts primarily as a toll processor and marketing service company handling the ovine, goat, deer and calf skins of a number of export meat companies.  The primary processing involves the fellmongering and pickling of lamb skins for sale internationally for manufacture into high quality leather garment ware and handbags. The wool recovered is sold domestically as slipe wool.  Some grades of skins are sold in salted form with their wool on at specific times of the year.
