The rarest and most luxurious leather in the world comes from the smallest species of the South American wild boar, the peccary. Peccaries are wild boars that are found primarily in Central and South America and southwestern North America and are most common in the Amazon.
The legal hunt for peccaries is strictly controlled by the CITES guidelines to ensure a healthy population of species and the natural balance of the ecosystem. In this context, it should be noted that the leather may only be sold as a by-product of sustainable hunting.
The animals live in the wild and are shot exclusively for consumption, which is particularly important to WITTING when purchasing leather.

Another unmistakable distinguishing feature is the grain of the peccary leather, a pattern of three small pores sitting in a row.
