We offer four standard silk flex colours, Havana, Chocolate, Black and Silver. We can supply other flex colours on request.
We only use natural vegetable dyed cow hides. The colour seeps all the way through the leather which allows edges to be stitched together and burnished using a semi precious stone. The holes are punched by hand and sewn together by hand so that there are no push through marks, so visible on machined leather stitching. Our leatherwork is fashioned in the Welsh Mountains by a former maker of handbags for Bill Amberg and the fashion industry. COM: We can work with client own leathers, but normally they will require twice the leather and need to be stitched through rolled edges for a seamless join. We can also offer a wide range of stitching colours. Please contact us for assistance.
Marble & Semi Precious stone
We use predominantly Carrara Marble and Black Granite for the bases of our products, but can also use semi-precious stone such as Lapis Lazuli, Rose Quartz, Clear Rock Crystal & Malachite. Please enquire if you want us to match a specific stone.
We do both Chrome and Polished Nickel, the latter being slightly warmer than the former. Our standard living finishes are Antique Brass and Bronze, which are both created through a chemical ageing process and the use of beeswax and will continue to tarnish and patinate over time. Our stove lacquered finishes are fixed and do not tarnish. These are: Polished Brass, Satin Brass and Satin Nickel. We can use 24K Gold Plating and for any custom finish please contact us directly.
Our wood is made by wood turner Gary Rance. He travels internationally to promote the tradition and is best known for providing Judges around the world with their gavels. There is no wood that he cannot work with and nothing that cannot be made in any size.
