General info

We are a traditional family business, passionate about making fine suede leathers. We consider suede production to be a craft and we have remained faithful to the artisanal skills, techniques and know-how that others have forgotten, taking the time to work our suede in the traditional way. These skills continue to live on in harmony with modern production technologies. We appreciate that quality leather can never be a commoditised product, with each hide having its own characteristics, and we treat it accordingly.


Whilst we pride ourselves on making the best classic suedes available, we don’t rest on our laurels and are constantly seeking to innovate new leathers to meet our customers’ needs and provide them with unique and interesting topical looks to ensure their products stand out in the marketplace, whilst never compromising our unrelenting commitment to produce high quality natural products.
