Many of our customers have previously been ordering with delivery by the Canada Post Small Packet Air or Small Packet Surface service. Canada Post has made some changes to their services. In the past both of these included insurance coverage of up to $100, which is being discontinued. Canada Post is adding a new service called Tracked Packet - USA and Tracked Packet - International. The service is slightly higher priced than the previous Small Packet service and includes tracking as well as insurance up to $100.
On the odd occasion when a Small Packet shipment had gone astray, Canada Post had been waiting 45 days to start a ticket on Small Packet Air and 75 days to start a ticket on Small Packet Surface. With the Tracked Packet service, that waiting time is now 30 days.

Sea Leather Wear is now mobile-friendli-er. We hope that we were not mobile-unfriendly before, but that you will find the mobile site easier to navigate on your smart devices. The switch to change the viewing mode between classic (i.e. desktop) and mobile is at the bottom of the page. While the intent is to keep the same content in both cases, some parts, such as the videos and the Printable Catalog, are only available in the classic view mode at this time. For the ultimate in friendly, email or phone us!

Our shipping options have improved. The Canada Post shipping rates now show correctly in US dollars, instead of Canadian dollars, when the selected currency is US Dollar. Also, we are now able to offer some better pricing on Fedex shipping. For Fedex International Priority shipments, weighing between 3 kg. - 10 kg., the Fedex rate discount is now increased from 25% to 40%.

For additional information, see the shipping page.

April 4, 2009.
Note: The shipping costs that are calculated may be inaccurate when more than 1 item is ordered. This is because the shipping calculation assumes a fixed dimensional package size, but items are usually combined into 1 package to save shipping cost. To get a more accurate estimate, for example, of shipping cost on 2 different 25 suede skin stocklots, enter a 50 suede skin stocklot first, and once the shipping cost is retrieved, remove the item from your cart. The post-authorized amount for the transaction is always adjusted for the actual shipping charge.
April 2, 2009.
If you purchase any Sampler or Stocklot package before April 15, we will discount a second similar item to 50% off of the web price. The second item can be the same item, or any other in the same category. The lesser priced of the 2 items becomes discounted. There is no quantity limit for ordering. The offer is extended to factory seconds, also. If ordering on-line, the discount is not automatically calculated, but will be applied before your transaction is post-authorized.
March 28, 2009.
A referral program is now in place. If you previously ordered from us, both you and your referral will receive discounts on your next purchase.

November 17, 2008.
Please note that if you are interested in Canada Post shipping, the Currencies box, on the right side, should be set to "Canadian Dollar", because when it is set to "US Dollar", the Canada Post rates display as $USD, but are actually in $CAD. The transaction can be processed in Canadian dollars.
November 12, 2008.
An offering has been added to the stocklots by color groups, in light colors.
October 31, 2008.
As progress is being made in sorting our large inventory into color groups and specific colors, our website has been updated to offer stocklot pricing on specific colors, replacing what was previously referred to as "Preferred Colors" stocklots.
Our offering of Factory Seconds now includes the major color groups - reds, blues, greens, browns, light colors, or an assorted variety. An offering of glazed Factory Seconds has been added.
We have also added to our Sampler section, to offer some of the fancier finishes that our leather has been manufactured in, which includes high grain glazed finishes, as well as silk, pearlized and foil finishes. We stock these in smaller quantities than our usual glazed and suede skins.
This page will be updated from time to time, to let you know if there are significant changes on our website. A video to give you further information on the colors that our skins are offered in, is expected to be added shortly.
