A Note from the President

Hello,

Thank you for checking out our website.

I am passionate about exotic natural materials. I love dealing with furs, hides, skins, shells, meteorites, fossils, bones, teeth, tusks, and horns from around the world. I am fascinated by nature’s creations, whether it is the beautiful spiral of a turbo shell or the sheen of polished mahogany.

I find it fascinating visiting indigenous artists in their homes in remote regions of North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. I love buying and selling handmade leather, masks, hats, and crafts that I have sourced directly from places such as Lesotho and remote reservations in Canada.

Since 1992, I have roamed the planet seeking the finest materials and crafts available for our customers.

I cannot envision retiring. The world is far too fascinating to spend my time playing golf or taking up a “hobby.”

I am looking forward to serving you.

Thank you.

Paul Crosby
President
