Elephant is tanned in pieces with each piece having it own distinct grain, some heavy and some smooth. It is a very popular leather and is fairly available due to the governments in south of Africa not wasting the meat or hides of those animals taken for population control. Elephant is scuff resistant for work and is nice for casual wear. Since it is fairly dry, it should be regularly cleaned and conditioned.

Why don’t you see more elephant boots on the shelves? 1) Hides are only available when the African government reduces elephant populations to protect villages and surrounding farmland. 2) Larger boot companies aren’t willing to invest in such a small-scale program, but lucky for you, Anderson Bean likes being small. Anderson Bean loves being different, and they appreciate good stewardship of the land our good Lord gave us.
