Handcrafted leather footstools

Over 90 years experience in making quality handcrafted leather animals…

It seems that the first pig came about almost by accident when ‘Old Bill’, who worked making hand luggage for Libertys of London, wondered what could be done with the left over leather. He came up with the idea of a leather pig footstool which he offered to Liberty’s for resale in 1927. In those early days the pigs were made from pigskin and had very long noses.

Whatever You Need

Decorative. Gift. Functional.
There is an animal for you

The Omersa animal is all about the story…

There are many reasons why we continue the tradition of making these wonderful animals but it is the feedback we get from our customers that really keeps us inspired. The appreciation of the level of craftsmanship that goes into the making of each piece is often commented on and make us feel very proud.  Our animals have been described as humorous, quirky, artful and “beyond expectation” making them fantastic gifts for special occasions.  No two are identical thanks to the type of leather we use and the handcrafting process.  They appeal equally to men, women and children and for those who have grown up with an Omersa animal, they 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 used with great effect as a statement piece to decorate a home, office, or hotel. They are often used by Interior Designers  and over the years we have featured in several hotel projects. You may have come across them during your stay.
