The Perfect Pet
by Liza Laserow
These stunning leather animals were originally made by Omersa and Company. The company are and is still known for its collection of handmade leather animal footstools called the Omersa Collection. The first leather pig was made in England in 1927 and sold through Liberty’s of London, where they can still be found today. Since the 1960’s they have been exported to the USA and were sold in Abercrombie and Fitch stores. They continue to have a significant following and today can be found across the world in selected department stores.
