Since 1999 our studio has been specifying and selecting leather goods for 5-star hotels, luxury ocean liners and private residences. Our collection of luxurious leather wall and surface coverings are born out of years of research and experimentation, combined with continued investment in cutting edge design and manufacturing technologies.
Creating interior pieces that are the definition of ‘Hand Made Luxury’ striving to deliver an instantly recognizable aesthetic, through a philosophy to never compromise on the integrity of the craftsmanship.
