Table Lining

Most desk top leathers are hand coloured, antiqued and finished with a surround of gilt tooling. Our leather is sprayed with a protective lacquer which imparts a delicate sheen to the finish.

We use two main types of leather for desk tops :

* Full-grained cow hide
* thicker and more durable than skiver
* large enough for most desks
* Sheep skin skiver (a cheaper option) for small jobs
* thinner and less durable than cow hide

As an additional service we also line card tables in various grades of cloth.
