From raw materials and finishes developed in our tanning, fabric dying and printing workshops, through to cut & sew, frame construction and finishing, everything is done by hand, with simple tools, in our own workshops.
Leathers of natural beauty
Not all leathers are the same
Most of the world’s leathers today are processed, pigmented, painted, stripped, and corrected, often with heavy layers of artificial coatings and treatments. Poor quality leather is often hidden underneath uniform artificial coatings that make them look more appealing.
But while they look good when new, they do not last. Scratches, stains, and stretching can quickly degrade the surface and furniture soon wears out.
Sofa Workshop collections use only special selections of top quality hides, and finishes them entirely by hand, using a process that can take up to 3 days for each hide.
No heavy pigmentation, no grain correction, just translucent dyes that are worked deep into the leather while ensuring its magical, natural, properties are preserved.
