Question:

Is there any requirement regarding the type of material a tefillin bag (or tallis bag) can be made from? Can leather be used and if so, does it matter if the leather came from a kosher or non-kosher animal (crocodile, snake etc.)?

Answer:

There are laws regarding the material that the tefillin and it’s straps must be made from, but the tefillin bag can be made of the leather of a non kosher animal.

Best Wishes

    • You are right, it can be made of any material.I was just referring to the persons question
