The path to quality
runs through us!


The KARO Group builds on traditional leather production in the Central European region. Since the mid-1990s, the founder of the company, Pavel Klvaňa, and the group’s companies have been involved in the leather trade for the furniture industry. Over time, the original business group was transformed into a manufacturing plant dedicated to the comprehensive machining processing and treatment of leather.

The actual production began in a newly-built facility in Boršov, near Jihlava, at the end of 2015. A modern and environmentally-friendly plant with first-rate machinery was created on the former grounds of a collective farm. In response to increasing customer demands, the company continues to expand its production plant and plans further development in the future.

KARO is distinguished on the market by the flexibility allowed by a comprehensive modern production facility and close relationship with customers. KARO’s goal is to build a company that offers high added value, seeks ways to improve further and is a major employer in the region. KARO works on several principles – customer satisfaction, reliability, willingness, openness, teamwork and professionalism, responsible behavior and following the principles of circular economy.

About us

In the 1990s, the leather industry almost disappeared as a result of the decline of shoe and furniture manufacturers in the Czech Republic. However, KARO found customers abroad and has been engaged in the leather trade since the mid-1990s; the company continues to expand. In the past, the exclusively trading group was transformed into a manufacturing plant. Today, the KARO Group consists of two limited liability companies and one joint stock company.


KARO currently supplies its customers with about 40 types of buffalo and cowhide products unique in their colour, pattern and thickness, but also softness, touch, surface finish and other important parameters. The current colour collection consists of over 400 shades. As KARO primarily produces upholstery leather, the company’s customers are mainly furniture manufacturers.

Environmentally-friendly cleaning results in a secondary (waste) product – meat – for processing in the food industry. Thus, the hides are not created specifically for the leather industry and KARO’s products are different from synthetically produced artificial leather, which is manufactured for this special purpose, has no secondary use and requires environmentally demanding disposal.

Most of KARO’s production goes to other European Union countries, especially Poland, where a significant part of the primary furniture production for the European continent is located. KARO’s trading partners are the most important companies in the field of upholstered furniture production. In the future, KARO intends to expand into the automotive segment.
