Over 90 years of experience in making quality handmade leather animals…

It seems that the first pig came about almost by accident when ‘Old Bill’, who worked making hand luggage for Liberty’s of London, wondered what could be done with the left over leather. He came up with the idea of a stuffed leather pig footstool which was first offered for sale through Liberty’s in 1927. In those early days the pigs were made from pigskin and had very long noses! Today the animals are made from cowhide, specifically tanned for our purposes and are highly tactile!

The Omersa animal is all about the story…

Our animals have been described as humorous, quirky, artful and beautifully made making them unique gifts for special occasions particularly weddings, christenings and special anniversary birthdays.  They are equally appreciated by men, women and children and for those who have grown up with an Omersa animal, they have become a very special part of childhood and a highly coveted family heirloom!

One of the joys of working with the animals are the stories we hear from our customers.

Make a Statement


As well as having a practical use as a footstool, our animals are often used with great effect as a statement piece to decorate a home,office or hotel. They are often used by Interior Designers as a statement piece in a project and over the years we have featured in several hotel projects.
