Materials

Our leather is made using natural botanical extracts from varieties of bark, fruit, roots and leaves.

Environmentally friendly with no harsh chemicals, it’s a slow process taking up to six months from start to finish. The end result is a beautiful rich leather and deep natural colours.

This natural leather will develop a unique patina over time by you, your life and whatever is thrown at it. The end result is a warm caramel colour.
