We are based in Hillsborough, Co Down.

We are passionate about what we do, always keeping in mind sourcing the highest quality of lambskin for our leather collection – The origin of the lambskin is of highest importance.

The buttery soft leather is sourced from the Welsh valleys, Yorkshire Dales and our farms in the Emerald Isle. Each piece in the collection is 100% lambskin and handcrafted giving a luxury finish.

The brand is at the heart of the business and encompasses values of Britishness and handcrafted products.

Presently the collection includes ladies jackets, coats and shirts with a collection of handbags and accessories.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Garment Dyes

Our colour ranges from blush, nude, antique brown, shadow, chocolate, navy and steel blue. New colours are continually added to the collection. We liaise closely with the tannery to ensure the lambskin is dyed to the perfect shade; should you have a colour that you desire, please call one of our team and we will see if it is possible.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Bespoke to you

Our beautiful bespoke linings have a modern edge, they are vibrant and burst with endless energy.

At Tahlia, each of our products are handpicked with our customers in mind. We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality of lambskin, never compromising on our attention to detail.

Our strategy is to increase customer value and have our products in stores across Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland as well as our online shop.

We are focussed on developing and investing in our infrastructure and IT systems to support the growth of the business.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Sourcing with Integrity

Tahlia lambskin is exclusively sourced from the Welsh Valleys, Yorkshire Dales and our farms on the Emerald Isle. As our leather is sourced from UK and Ireland, we are proud to support ethical and sustainable luxury.

To ensure our products are of the highest quality which our customers expect, we liaise closely with a team of tailors who hand cut and handcraft the fine leather.

They not only meet our quality expectations but they also understand, meet and embrace our strong values. This means we have ethical standards in place which our suppliers comply with ensuring that their workforce, working conditions, are not just legally compliant but are also fair, responsible and sustainable.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
