Lowest Leather Prices:
We pride ourselves in having among the lowest wholesale leather prices. Our catalogue is our wholesale price list; and our wholesale pricing is available to everyone with a resale license or a wholesale club membership. (Please see "Ordering Information," on page 9 for information on how to become a wholesale club member.) Where not stated, additional discounts are given for larger volumes.
We have the best guarantee in the business and we back that guarantee up with action. Our intent is to act as your onsite purchasing agent to meet your needs. Accordingly, we have a couple of very unusual policies that are a reflection of this "code of ethics". For most orders (exceptions can be larger, negotiated priced items) we pay freight in the "Lower 48" for orders over $75 which are being shipped via UPS.
We allow you 10 days after receipt to give us a call if the leather does not meet your expectation and we will send a UPS call tag to pick up the leather with no freight charges for you!!! (We reserve the right to modify this policy for special orders and special pricing negotiated via phone)
Our policy can most easily be summed it in a few ancient words, "We try to treat you, as we ourselves, would expect to be treated under the same circumstances."
Siegel of California is Strictly a Wholesale Supplier:
We don’t process our leathers in any way and do not compete with manufacturers. When suppliers are also manufacturers, they have the advantage of keeping the best skins for their production. Purchasing from manufacturers/suppliers could actually help your competition.
Protection of Industry Standards:
We are leaders in the protection of our National Security Stan-dards. We always represent and denominate the leathers accurately. You can trust that our English Bridle is the genuine article from J & E Sedgwick in England.

The leather district of Boston was, at that time, the center of trade for the entire world, and anyone wanting to deal with anything in leather or other goods (importing or exporting) would go to the South Street merchants.
Steven Siegel was trained in the leather business from an early age; starting in the 1950’s. He typically worked school holidays and summers in the family business. Steve's grandfather, Morris, who started the business was his mentor as well as his father and his uncle who were also in the business. The business on South Street when Steve grew up and learned the trade first hand, represented on the “Street” virtually every imp
