This is where Ahmedabad-based Yeti Leather  excels in catering to modern demands with its immense commitment to manufacturing & exporting fine-quality leather accessories.

For over 3 and a half decades, the company has been outshining in the Indian Leather segment; thriving with its expertise and sensitivity towards customer needs.

The foundational stones of Yeti were carefully designed around the vision of offering the finest possible quality at the most affordable prices.

Progressing One-Step at a Time

"When we started, we were a one-product company – manufacturing wallet. The journey was indeed a herculean task, as we were focused on exports. However, finest possible quality at the most affordable prices was our motto. Today, we are a multiproduct company with a wide range of Leather Wallets, Accessories, Travel Accessories, Leather, Belts, Reversible Belts, and Women’s Bags, office bags, Limited Edition Leather Jackets, Leather Footwear; launched between the years 1986 and 2002. In the year 2004, my son Meit joined the company to give shape to the foundation. Subsequently, we began manufacturing Cotton Shirts and opened 2 Flagship Showrooms in Ahmedabad (India). Down the line we added Cotton Polo t.shirts, Leather Sandals for Men, Men's Formal Shoes, Women's Tunics, Cobbler's Den Exclusive High End, Men's Shoes, Ballerina/Pump Footwear for Women, and more.

We have come a long way; witnessing transformations in styles &colours, a revolution in technology &manufacturing techniques, coupled with changes in marketing approaches. We have seen a new approach to train and retain the workforce; new ways of raising money, and new ways of logistics. We always try our best to implement the same. One of our advantages is that our set-up is extremely flexible. We have the capacity and ability to supply just 1 piece or even thousands of pieces of a product. This makes us retain customers; and we never say no to their requests for special quantities. We are now planning to promote the brand locally and reach pan India, add more retail outlets, ensure direct factory to retailers across India. We are also launch custom-made jackets at factory prices." shares Deepak Vakil, Founder and Owner.
