The Mongolian yak lives at an altitude of 3000 meters. At such an altitude, temperatures can vary considerably and can be extremely low (-40 ° c to -50 ° c). Ordinary animals cannot survive this high temperature. The compact hide of the SARLAG (yak) protects the animal against these extreme temperatures and this makes the leather very strong and durable. 

The Region we taking our leather - Western part of the Mongolia, 2900m altitude

I am a ordinary Mongolian citizen. My parents were nomads and they have lived in a western part of the Mongolia. Early 1960s, they starting to live in a capital. My father often tells me that we have a lot of animals like camels, sheep, horses and yaks. Finally, they gave all animals to the state for free before to go to the capital, the time we were under Soviet regime. Sadly, as I am an urban child, our previous life sounds like old story and we forget them from year to year. 

 Why SARLAG (yak in Mongolian) leather? 

I have a almost 10 years of experience in a mining field as Occupational health and safety specialist. While working in a mining sector, i've noticed that there is significant encountered difficulties for nowadays nomadic civilizations and traditions.  Climate change, poverty and mining industries impacts to the nature and herders immigration to the cities, it's the most worried and agitated questions. Today, I see how the nomadic civilization and herders life changing. Specially, they leaving the nature and choosing the city life due to the lack of the good revenue. Opposite site, due to the immigration we can see the significant poverty impact in urban areas. 

Instead of working with a big international company, I decided to pursue my passion which can have an impact on the life of our nomads. This is the main reason to start a sustainable long-term project to improve the sustainable lives of herders and to reduce poverty.  My wife and i certain to make a real contribution to the herders' life taking directly naturally grown raw materials from the herders in order to produce the high-quality products locally made by our own hand and to bring them to world market. Thats why SARLAG (yak) leather products which you can not find any where in the world. 

 Due to the Mongolian weather conditions, SARLAG (yak) leather is three times tougher than cowhides, yet as soft as moose leather. Also it has great tensile strength, making it suitable for long straps. 

In addition, it is purchased directly from nomadic herders who live in a western part of Mongolia.
