Nothing Equals Leather For Beauty, Function, And Versatility
The qualities of leather - created by nature and preserved by the tanner - are superior to those of any man-made or synthetic material.
FLEXIBILITY - Leather stretches to conform to individual contours, yet retains sufficient shape to provide support.
DURABILITY - Leather "breathes" allowing air in and moisture out. A natural insulator, leather protects against extremes in temperatures
BEAUTY - By its very nature, leather comes in a wide range of pleasing textures and surface patterns. It also takes well to a variety of finishing processes, designs, and color applications. A rich "feel" and pleasing scent heighten the appeal of leather.
