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

All our products are designed exclusively by Omersa and Company and are made to order at our workshop in Lincolnshire, England. We strive to remain true to the original methods of production and standards of craftsmanship and offer you a product of excellence.

Our animals have been described as quirky and humorous making unique gifts for special occasions – weddings, christenings, special anniversary birthdays – and they are equally appreciated by men, women and children. 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!

The Omersa animal is all about the story…

Our animals have been described as quirky and humorous making unique gifts for special occasions – weddings, christenings, special anniversary birthdays – and they are equally appreciated by men, women and children. 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.

We have received many animals over the years for repairs and some TLC. Owners become very attached to their animals and want to keep them in the family; they arrive wrapped in blankets with notes of great compassion. “Bertie needs a new tail and some eyes to see with again ….. we look forward to receiving him home again”. We appreciate the special meaning and memories our animals have and are sympathetic to requests to make repairs.

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!
