Leather Swatches
Our Leathers are selected at source for fineness, texture, evenness, and feel. This means that only the highest quality end product is received by you, our customer.

Antique Leathers
These are our standard leathers– fine in quality and available in ten different
colours, these leathers are blacked prior to being applied to the frame. Then,
once assembly is finished, the leather is rubbed by hand, removing the black and
revealing the colour below. Once this is complete, the entire product is then hand
Light Rust Tan Autumn Tan Gold Brown Rust Green Olive Rosso Blue
sealed to protect the leather and final finish. This painstaking process gives the end
product an authentic, antiqued appearance.

Premier Leathers
If you are looking for something more in your sofa or chair, the premier leather
range is for you.
White Hare Parchment Cognac Beaver Fox New England Forest Green Sand Buckskin
These leathers are pre-treated with a special blend of natural finishing products and
because of this give great contrast on any piece of furniture. The grain is finer than
the antique range and these leathers feel softer to the touch. The range of colours
available is vast, with nineteen standard shades available.

Hand Dyed Leathers Saddle Bruciato Chestnut Dark Brown Smoke Black Gamay Burgundy Alga

The ultimate in leather finishing- the hand dyed range add an element of total
individuality to your furniture.

The Hand Dying process is a time honoured, traditional method of leather finishing
which has been done the same way for many centuries. The leather is vegetable
tanned and is dyed by hand by a professional leather worker, before being sealed
and sent to final assembly where it is applied to your piece. The finish is a rich,
deep colour over a very fine grained leather- soft to touch. The leather will develop
its own characteristic patina after many years of use and really will become better Walnut Chestnut Mahogany Oak Ebony
and better with age.
