For thousands of years, Tibetan nomads have relied on yaks to help traverse the rugged terrain of the majestic Himalayan region and serve as “beasts of burden” to carry out physically arduous tasks. From exploring the high-altitude grasslands, where these hardy creatures have roamed for generations, to daily duties, these animals have adapted to the harsh conditions of the roof of the world.
Perched about 14,500 feet above sea level, the Yak thrives in extreme conditions where the summer months are still cool, with temperatures ranging between 37°F to 63°F and temperatures ranging between -13°F to 30°F in the harsh winter months.
The yak's natural adaptation to the extreme cold climate of the Himalayas means its thick, heavy skin is designed to keep it warm in the harshest conditions. Packed with fatty tissue that acts as a natural insulator, yak hides are a testament to nature's ingenuity.These qualities protect yaks from extreme weather, which allows them to produce exceptional multi-season leather.
Yak leather is known for its fine and uniform texture, making it a top choice for high-quality leather goods. The thin, compact woven collagen fiber and closed fine grain of yak leather give it a distinct multi-seasonal versatility, making it ideal for a wide range of applications. Experience the durability and strength of yak leather, which has been cherished by Tibetans for its resilience and ability to withstand the toughest conditions. The softness and suppleness of yak leather ensure comfort during your daring escapades, while its breathability keeps you fresh and dry. Whether you're braving the cold of winter or venturing out in warmer weather, yak leather is designed to perform.
