About Us

The Skin Thing is an ethical, family-owned business specialising in superior quality animal products. After operating on the Sunshine Coast for over 30 years, we’re leaders in the industry. That means we know how to spot a damn good cowhide a mile away.

Reliable partnerships are at the heart of what we do. It’s why we scoured the globe to find our main supplier — located in beautiful Brazil. Responsible sourcing and ethical manufacturing is an indispensable mission that informs every decision we make.

We also have a proudly zero-waste philosophy. You might be wondering what ‘zero-waste’ means in the animal product industry. For us, it means every scrap of cowhide and sheepskin we source finds a home. We’re diligent about ensuring less environmental pollution and helping the planet, one hide at a time.

Why The Skin Thing?

Whether you’re on the hunt for an A grade cowhide rug, snuggly ugg boots or a luxe sheepskin (for that Scandinavian touch), we offer an exclusive product range you won’t find anywhere else in Australia.

Our inventory is hand-picked and inspected by our sourcing team, guaranteeing high-grade product at a competitive price. That means all of our hides are defect-free, lay nicely and look lavish. If you find a lower price anywhere else, let us know. We’ll gladly match it!

We understand that not every rug suits every room — finding the perfect pairing takes trial and error. If you’re ever unsatisfied with your purchase, we’ll always offer you a chance to exchange and find your dream match.

Great selection of skins at very reasonable prices. I have shopped here for decades and thought it was time to leave 5 stars. Customer service is down to earth and 'real'.
