Fibre by Auskin specializes in the sourcing, design, production and distribution of hotel sheepskin products for the interior. Headquartered in Australia, close to the source of our raw materials, we operate our own tanning and manufacturing facilities in China and a network of strategically located warehouses & sales offices in Asia, North America, Australasia and Europe.
From our roots in sheepskin, our passion for natural fibres now extends to sourcing a wide range of unique natural fibres and textures from around the globe: alpaca wool and skin cushions, area rugs & throws from South America; leather & cotton cushions, pillows, throws, area rugs & soft furniture from India; camel hair throws & cushions from China; wool, linen and modal throws from Europe. All these fibres sit around a core range of hotel sheepskin products including rugs, cushions, bean bags, ottomans and area rugs that we offer in a wide range of textures and colours.
We offer curated ranges of finished products from our warehouses and bespoke interior design solutions. Smart, innovative design and craftsmanship is at the heart of what we do, so partner with us and give your guests interior spaces layered with the beauty, softness and long-lasting comfort of authentic natural fibres.
Textures include long silky curled Tibetan fibres, short curly fleeces from sheep bred to produce strong resilient carpet wools, soft densely packed fine wools from Australia and long lustrous fibres from New Zealand. Our colours are tuned to fit with a wide variety of interiors and we also love to find rare and unique natural fleeces which feature unusual combinations of natural, browns, greys, creams and black fibres.

We have set up strategically located warehouses to ensure that our sheepskin and natural fibre collections are available for quick delivery to local customers. These collections represent the core popular natural fibres, textures and colours from the many options available; catalogues of these stocked lines are available upon request. Stocked items in our warehouses do vary one from region to another in response to different customer demand in the different geographies, but if something that you want isn’t available we can certainly order it in from our factory; there are just lead times to consider. Our sales teams are located at our warehouses and will be able to talk you through the details of what is in stock for prompt delivery.
Smart, innovative design and craftsmanship is at the heart of what we do and we love collaborating with our customers to come up with bespoke solutions for their businesses. We work with the sourcing, tanning and colouring specialists in our sheepskin tannery to create unique products for when our customers need a point of difference to set them apart from others in their field. Here, craft meets technology to continually re-invent one of the oldest natural materials used by humankind.

Ethical sourcing is a vital part of our group DNA. Most of the sheepskins processed by Fibre by Auskin are sourced from New Zealand. These sheepskins are a bi-product of pastoral farming where sheep are raised outdoors, primarily for meat. In 2014, World Animal Protection released its Animal Protection Index, which ranks 50 countries across the world on their animal welfare standards. This placed New Zealand in first place alongside the United Kingdom, Austria and Switzerland. In our tannery we are continually improving production methods to save energy, decrease waste and reduce our environmental impact. Recent significant gains have been achieved through the utilization of solar energy, heat recovery technologies and a new state of the art water purification facility. As recognition for a high standard of production, Auskin has successfully achieved the Oeko-Tex 100 certification in both Class 1 for Ivory and Class 2 for Ivory and for all of our light and medium coloured long wool and short wool products.
Our factory is regularly audited for social responsibility and all of the sheepskins we produce carry the woolmark logo.
Our philosophy is to provide safe hotel sheepskin products, of the highest quality, produced with the lowest possible impact on the environment.
