Why Leather?

· · · Comments

We believe nothing brings visual warmth to a room like leather does. Each leather mirror, stool, or lamp we make is completely unique from the one before it due to the living nature of the material. Living finishes, like leather, respond to light, use, and time itself. Our leather pieces will change with you, becoming more beautiful and more distinctly yours the longer you have them. Tanning leather is one of humankind’s oldest and most effective methods of creating goods. Anthropologists have shown there is evidence that suggests humans began creating leather as far back as 400,000 years ago. We are not fashioning slings and loin cloths much anymore, but we are still drawn to the timeless nature of this material. 

Leather wants to be refreshed every once in a while. We always recommend a soft cloth for cleaning and a light application of conditioner to hydrate the leather. Take care of it and its beauty will only be enhanced with time. 

Here is a link to a good article we found on tips for leather care by Rue magazine:
