  • Leather and wood are the only materials that get better and more luxurious with age. No other material is so durable as leather, it is easy to care for and natural. Because leather "breathes," it won't pick up on surrounding room temperatures, whether too cold or too hot. As your leather furniture matures it will crease and soften to look better and become more comfortable the more you use it. Inevitably there are variations in the grain and texture, these are not faults but help to show the authenticity of the real thing .

  • Only a handful of people still have the skills required to hand dye and finish leather hides. For this kind of leather, it is necessary to use a natural full grain aniline cow hide. A thicker hide than would be used in normal machine operated dyeing and finishing processes, used in large tanneries. Firstly the piece of furniture is upholstered fully, using the natural aniline leather and at this stage the leather is uncoloured. After upholstery is completed, the leather is applied with natural dyes, oils and waxes, to obtain the natural feel and texture of traditionally hand finished leather. The result is a unique product, finished in the old traditional way. And has a patina that tannery finished leather can not match.
