The Shetland Tannery Ltd. is a retail company that provides luxury sheepskins and Shetland lifestyle products. 


Founded by Natalie Cairns- Ratter in Shetland, 2012, Natalie started The Shetland Tannery from her croft with a leatherwork certificate and drive to create a company that offers a nod to the traditional Shetland lifestyle. 

From tanning her first sheepskin, the business has grown new products and processes and has successfully evolved since.


In true Shetland tradition, Natalie has passed on her craft and love for the rural life.

 Our process

All of our sheepskins undergo the process of tanning. 

We work with another British and European tannery, so we can provide our beautiful Shetland Tannery sheepskins all year round. 

Once tanned our sheepskins are hand-finished by The Shetland Tannery to luxury standards.

We're proud to offer all products that represent our business ethos.
