Fabrics Design Inspiration Leather
Our world is perfectly imperfect, and natural beauty is most brilliant when products are at their purest form. Leather is no exception. Quality is embedded in the natural markings on leather because it originates from a raw material – the hide. Appreciation of these natural markings and imperfections is the first step in understanding the innate luxury of leather.
With proper care, these leathers create family heirloom quality pieces, passed down from generation to generation. Selected from top-grade European hides, they are not branded and typically have fewer scratches because they have not been contained by barbed wire. Our tannery works to find the highest-end option for us, allowing us to keep the natural beauty from the hides. After selection, there are 40 different complex processes that our leathers go through to cleanse, purify, soften, and color the hide. Throughout the coloring process there will inherently be subtle variation.
Our rich, earthy neutrals and bold, jewel-toned leathers will make your upholstered piece the statement of any room. Aging luxuriously and beautifully, developing more texture and softness, becoming more and more a part of the home. We offer aniline leathers, protected leathers, and nubuck — each with their own beauty and distinct hand.

About Our Types of Leather
Aniline leathers receive their colors from dye and different areas of the hide will absorb the dyes differently. Aniline leather will develop a rich patina over time with use.
Nubuck is a top grain leather that is dyed, then further produced to have a nap.
Protected leathers are top grain leathers with a pigment applied for color consistency along with a clear, water-based topcoat to give the leather extra protection.
