About Source and Origin
All of our animal skins originate from sanctioned culls. Culling is especially necessary to protect herd lands from the devastating effects of overpopulation, and is therefore a positive, productive process.
Responsible operators specifically use the proceeds of culling to develop waterholes and other infrastructure, in order to contribute to and ensure the survival and growth of African herds.
By maximising the return to the farmer, better control is then afforded which maintains and even improves the value of animals and strengthens each species' long-term survival prospects.
Culling is therefore an essential conservation action - it helps to continue the natural cycle of life.
All skins SGHideRugs supply are obtained legally, and no animal has been hunted only for its skin. Culling licenses are strictly controlled by government and wildlife organisations.
