Our Story

Only Leather Tannery in Hong Kong

A young company rooted in over 3 decades of history.  

Shui Hing Tannery is a long-established leather manufacturing factory in Hong Kong, and is the remaining leather factory in Hong Kong. It was founded in the early 1980s, at a time when high-quality leather products or semi-finished products could be produced locally in Hong Kong.

However, as Hong Kong's economy transformed, many leather factories began to transform or relocate. Shui Hing Tannery has consistently adhered to professional leather-making processes and continued production operations in Hong Kong, always pursuing quality and inheriting traditional leather-making techniques. 

In 2015, the company established its subsidiary, The Lederer, which specializes in the manufacturing and sales of high-end leather products. The Lederer also actively promotes the culture and technology of leather-making, providing products and services such as custom made hand-sew products, leather tools, high quality leathers, tutorials, workshops, and DIY leather stitching packs for enthusiasts, making further contributions to Hong Kong's leather culture.

The Lederer still adheres to traditional techniques and continues to innovate, while also providing leather enthusiasts and consumers with more diversified choices and experiences.
