A customer relayed the story of when he first moved to New Zealand as a newly qualified doctor with a suitcase and his treasured leather pig tucked under his arm given to him by his parents as a 21st gift! Many years later he contacted us to order a pig for his daughters 21st thus continuing the tradition.
We have told many stories of childhood memories playing with an Omersa animal when visiting a grandmother,aunt etc and finally being able to purchase one of their own!
There has been the guest invited to Xmas dinner who arrived with a leather bull tucked under his arm and presented it as a gift to his hosts. Toro the bull!
We have several families who contact us every time a new child/grandchild is born into the family. Each new addition is given an Omersa animal to accompany them through life.
Another favourite tradition is to give an Omersa animal as a wedding gift to family members. We have several families where this is an unbroken tradition.
There have been many bemused wives who have received a leather animal for Xmas from a very pleased husband! Hopefully they become converted!
