Leather is like a vintage fine wine. It gets richer and more supple with time.
Leather comes from the skin of any animal, reptile, bird or fish. The skin is tanned to preserve it from quickly putrefying or decaying. Leather has been used by man for hundreds of years with the Eqyptians, Greeks, Romans and Vikings manufacturing chairs and other furniture.
Later the Industrial Revolution brought huge opportunities for leather makers when travel by train meant carriages as well as horse drawn carriages needed leather upholstery. With travel increasing demand grew quickly for leather goods such as luggage and trunks. Today it is used in many industries including clothing, upholstery, aviation and automotive.
Leather continues to be the material choice for many people with it's timeless, classical appeal.
