Our desk leathers are sheep hide and 1mm thick. This firm leather provides an excellent writing surface. Sheep hides are obviously not going to be big enough for all desk surfaces, so the maker joins pieces as necessary. Their skill in this work ensures that the result is always appropriate. A blind tooling (as shown between the color samples above) is run along each join and, if you choose, around the entire panel at the extreme of the specified panel size. To order these leathers, you will need to fax or mail us four pieces of information:
- 1) Exact final size .
- 2) Color code (for black use Color code VC9).
- 3) Tooling code (if required).
- 4) Would you like blind tooling around the panel at its final size?
If you need a black leather surface to replace a damaged original panel that was 20 1/2” x 34” and want the K tooling pattern with a blind tooling around the extreme edge, you would order:
20 1/2” x 34”, BL, 19, Yes.
The leather will come to you with about 1/2” of excess. Any tooling will be placed according to the best judgement of the maker in relation to the overall size you specify. Instructions for fitting are included with each purchase. Pricing is by, and to the next larger, 4” square and includes tooling. Orders for desk leathers are non-returnable unless we deviate from your order and can only be placed by fax or mail.
