Abstract

Some technological parameters of ostrich skins and leathers, which are considered to be important in the leather industry, were analysed. It was observed that these parameters vary according to whether skin comes from the neck, leg and back sides. However, on the basis of area and strength values, leg and back sides are more appropriate for upper leather production and neck sides may be used as accessories.
