About van Hoorn | Specialists in pig, goat and cow lining


The Van Hoorn Shoe Linings family business has grown out of the Van Hoorn family’s tanneries in 1930. In 1998, Warden and Felix took over control of the company, becoming a highly experienced, third-generation company with one main goal: to build lasting relationships with customers by providing them with the best customer service in the industry. Bringing passion and insight to the role and sharing the company’s core values of knowledge, experience, trust, speed and security.
