A set of 5 Coffee (brown) Premium Italian Top-Grain Leather Swatches, each 12" x 16".
This is the leather that Restoration Hardware uses on their rustic leather sofas; same tannery and same quality of leather. Check out their website or if you've seen one in person you know it's nice. This is a wax-pulls up leather, meaning it has an antique-style finish to it that lightens with colour when stretched around corners, giving an aged look.
The finish has a slight gloss.
This is a high-end Italian upholstery leather so it is very durable, but easy to work with and sew. This is premium top-grain cow hide.
A by-product of the furniture industry, these large sized swatches were to be used for sales samples, hence the holes in each corner for metal rings. You know the large books of swatches nicer furniture stores have? To show you all the expensive custom options that they can't have on the floor? These swatches never even made it to a sales floor, they are just overstock. Once a leather supply has run out, or the product it is on is discontinued for newer styles, the swatches meet their end in the trash. But not these ones! Rescued and stored with care this leather is ready for a second life!
Add an eco-friendly element to your finished product with this reclaimed leather.
*Note that each swatch has two small holes in the top corners, 1.5" in from the sides.
CUSTOM ORDERS BY REQUEST. Many other colours available. Specialty fashion colours limited but some available!
