Top Grain Upholstery Leather

What is Top Grain Leather? Top grain leather is leather from the uppermost layer of a hide. It is the highest quality part of the hide.

We offer several top grain upholstery leather lines in a variety of colors: Focus Line, Roman Line, Desert Line, Vintage Line, Athena Line, Euroglazed Line and Embossed Gator Line.

FOCUS is a very supple top grain cowhide leather that is aniline dyed using an entirely non-polluting system to ensure minimal waste, high quality and a product that is environmentally sound. The tannage uses selected raw materials to attain a very soft hand and drape. Once upholstered the natural grain provides a unique appearance and richness. A protective finish combined with waxes gives FOCUS added durability and excellent color consistency, without sacrificing an incredibly soft touch.

ROMAN is a full aniline hand antiqued leather which provides any piece with a sophisticated antique look. Roman is a top grain naturally pebbled leather that has been hand stained by a combination of subtle oils and waxes, followed by a protective topcoat to give it excellent wearability. It is then hot ironed to give it an added hand and a see through look reminiscent of the old English Bridle leathers. Once upholstered, the beauty and workmanship of this leather is amplified and brought to life, by giving any piece a natural transparent antique effect.

DESERT is top grain leather with even coloration throughout the entire hide. Hand selected exceptional quality Australian cattle hides with a gentle buffing and grain enhancement to provide a consistent grain structure throughout each hide and from hide to hide. Desert is recognized industry wide for its clean surfaces, excellent cutting yields and soft hand. Suitable for most high traffic interior applications from furniture, automotive and marine.

VINTAGE is a top grain leather featuring a subtle pull up, crackle effect and luxuriously soft waxy hand. The leather is dyed through and placed in oak drums to enhance the crackle effect. When stretched the leather will lighten in color revealing the pull up effect and a naturally aged look. Natural characteristics such as healed scars, insect marks and other signatures of nature add character and beauty to this leather. Vintage is suitable for most residential and hospitality applications.

ATHENA is our finest protected full grain leather. Only the best hand-selected European raw material is used for this leather. The hides have an amazing hand and don’t lose their natural appearance. Athena has an outstanding natural hair-cell grain that elevates its perceived value far above cost. The Athena finish makes this leather ideal for applications in medium and high traffic areas, like hospitality and contract seating applications. The hand sets this leather even further apart from almost all finished leathers. If you are looking for leather that combines the feel and beauty of pure aniline leather with the characteristics and durability of finished leather, Athena is the perfect solution for you. All natural characteristics of leather are reflected in this micro-finished top grain leather.

The Euroglazed Line is produced in an environmentally responsible manner by Europe's first leather producer to receive certification for its environmental management system according to EN ISO 14001 certification.

Euroglazed is an aniline through dyed top grain leather that has a two-tone effect achieved by a printing roller which provides a more even distribution of the shading. A high luster top coat is also applied to obtain the antiqued appearance. Euroglazed is offered in 8 colors. It is an excellent choice for desktops.

EMBOSSED GATOR LINE is a Top Grain, Semi-Aniline embossed Leather with the exotic look of crocodile. Specially tanned premium cowhides allow for embossing with more depth and character to create the texture of Embossed Gator. Embossed Gator is produced entirely by hand in a many step process using old artisan techniques. Color variations should be expected. The finish ages very nicely with use.
