The story goes that “Old Bill”, who worked in the leather trade, made a leather pig footstool from offcuts of leather circa 1927. He continued to make leather pigs, from pigskin in those days, until his retirement around 1958 when he passed on the business to Dimitri Omersa. It was after this date that Dimitri Omersa started to add new animals to the range.

The style of the pig and size has changed over the years. Pictures of older pigs are shown in the Gallery.

In 2017, to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the pig, we added a limited edition “anniversary” pig  in the style of the original. The number was limited to 90 pieces with the issue number stitched onto the underbelly. This option is now fully SOLD OUT.

Leather is a natural product and like our own skin needs looking after.

To keep your animal in the best of health for a long and happy life, we suggest the following care tips:

  • Dust and apply a coat of NIKWAX Waterproofing Wax regularly (say every 6 weeks). DO NOT USE any spray or liquid polish as these will strip the colour
  • Keep your animal dry and away from water. Regular coats of NIKWAX will help waterproof your animal against water damage
  • Keep your animal out of direct sunlight and or direct heat to prevent the leather from drying out
  • Supervise very young children playing with an animal. They like to put tails, ears, etc in their mouth and the stain may come off. NOTE: the stain is NON-TOXIC
  • The product is designed primarily as a decorative item for the home. It is NOT built to furniture standards and the internal frame will only stand a certain amount of rough play!

If the colour of your animal does fade and you would like to darken up, you can purchase a bottle of 250ML Stain – Mahogany Brown to apply. To get the best results, Nikwax waterproof liquid wax should be applied after re-staining. Both products can be found under Care and Other Products.
