A cool blue leather Humpback Whale: She’s around 80cm in length and weighs in at just under a kilo and a half.  With a baby…
Made of a beautifully soft blue leather with a pristine white tummy, they’ll grace any room – whether it’s hanging from a beam or resting on a shelf.

The Humpback Whale is a Baleen Whale; a filter-feeder, and has ventral pleats—creases that run vertically down the underside of a whale’s jaw all the way to its stomach. When feeding, the ventral pleats expand like an accordion to accommodate ahuge amount of food-rich water.  Our leather whale has those, too.

As with all the leather whales made in the Whale Whorkshop, at the Greenland Fishery, we don’t hide any imperfections – marks, scars or tears – in the leather used to make the whales.  In fact we highlight it, to make a point about damage and the vulnerability of cetaceans.

“On Back-Order” means that the one in the photo has gone to a new home and we’ll need to make another, so it’s more like “Made to Order”.  Contact Us if you have questions
