Old English is tanned to ensure a pleasing distressed or aged finish from new. Extra fat liquors are applied during tanning, to give the leather a slightly waxy feel. These leathers are designed to allow the natural marking variations of the leather to show through to the finish coat. Pull-up leathers do not have a consistent colour density across the whole hide. They are designed to change colour and sheen when pulled or stretched. They are not as colour fast as pigmented hides and are designed to allow furniture to age and relax through use and over time. Furniture should be protected from direct sunlight and not placed next to radiators. Evidence of marks and scarring will be seen through the surface finish. Each hide will be unique, and so will the furniture on which it is used. It’s available in a wide range of colours and has between a 0.9 and 1.0mm thickness.
The price below is per square metre which varies depending on the size of hide available when you order – a full hide is normally between 4-6 square metres.
Please note that samples are available as colours vary greatly on screens and when printed.
