Norman started in the Kuranda Heritage Markets in 1993. After a few years crafting cowhide leather belts, he branched out into making crocodile skin belts. The Australian Saltwater crocodile skin is the best quality in the world. Norman hand selects each and every skin for his belts from a local crocodile farm. Each belt is unique and comes from a different crocodile. Each one is individually made. When choosing other products and suppliers for Coral Coast Leather, Norman works closely with Australian suppliers to ensure consistent quality. He is committed to supporting local and quality family businesses, just like ours.
Locally sourced skins hand selected by Norman for their quality and texture.
Norman creates each belt individually with an absolute focus on bespoke style.
With over 25 years experience Norman has the expertise and equipment to create first class leather belts.
Our range of crocodile leather products offer something for every style and purpose.
I opened my stall at the Port Douglas Sunday craft market in 1998. I am well known there as the ‘belt man’. I really enjoy seeing customers on holiday who come back year after year, even several generations of the same family, to buy my belts. In August 2008, I opened a shop, Coral Coast Leather, in the main street of Kuranda and everything on our website is available in the shop. In our shop, you will see some local ‘characters’ including Maureen our resident 3.3 metre resident crocodile. Maureen has her own story … we look forward to seeing you at Coral Coast Leather soon. In the meantime, browse our online store to see our latest stock.
“My belts are made from one single piece of leather, making each belt unique and individual.”
