Marc Lailvaux demonstrates the quality of Mossop Leather’s products.

Formerly known as Western Boot & Tanning, Mossop Leather in Blignaut Street, Wellington, has been in the Boland region since 1871. In 1996, Western Boot & Tanning Co merged with Mossop & Son Leather, becoming Mossop Leather. Mossop & Sons was a well-known tannery from Cape Town. They were established in 1846 after their founder, Joseph Mossop, purchased land from John Ebden (the founding father of Old Mutual). Today Mossop Leather is one of the largest employers in Wellington, supporting 200 employees and their families. They have also diversified their revenue streams by exporting leather to Europe, the Indian subcontinent, and the Far East. This has enabled continuous company growth, while contributing to the local economy as well. Mossop Leather is More than Just a Tannery
