About us 

H. Leffler & Son Pty Ltd has been supplying leather and associated products to many industries for over 77 years, our range of products covers more than 9500 different lines. The range is so vast that customers have been heard to say:

“If you can’t find it at Leffler’s you just won’t find it!”

Our company was started in 1932 by Henry Wilby Leffler (Dec. 1957) as a supplier of leather, mainly to the shoe industry, located in Albert park, Victoria. In the very same year his son Richard (Dick) Leffler (Dec. 1998) was born. Dick joined the business full time in 1953 and immediately commenced developing new markets for Saddlery, Craft & Upholstery Leather.

Dick would see many new products on his many travels overseas and purchase large quantities he believed the Australian market needed. In many cases he would send the new lines out to the customers and say “just pay me when you have sold them”. In this way Dick not only grew the market but also financed many businesses to grow with it.

Over 91 years after its inception, the Leffler family still own the Company. The family and its staff continue to drive the business into the new millennium with modern technology and a desire to satisfy our customer needs by searching the world for new and interesting products
