Our best selling line, the leather hippo has a wonderful curvy shape and smiley face. Irresistible! This size is suitable for use as a footstool or occasional seat.

The product is hand made by Omersa using British cowhide leather. Inside the leather is a sturdy metal and wooden frame firmly surrounded by woodwool; the woodwool is hand worked to give the shape of the animal. It is this process that results in no two pieces being alike. Each piece  produced is truly unique. Once assembled, the leather is stained to give an “antique” effect in mahogany brown, then waxed and polished to give a luxurious finish.
