BOVINE UPHOLSTERY LEATHER
Bovine leather is our premium upholstery material… expect unparalleled quality, comfort, strength and suppleness for your newly upholstered furniture.
We are proud of our service of choosing only the most beautiful and best quality leather to offer as upholstery material to our clients. Since we stock full-grain analine finished leathers and corrected grain leathers, we guarantee an authentic product, including natural scratch marks and tick bites. We do not have control over all processes involved in the manufacturing of the upholstery leathers, but always strive towards delivering a product that is as close as possible to its natural state.
We offer bovine leathers in a variety of colours, as indicated below. The natural, authentic character of every skin is unique, and therefore our colour samples only aim to provide an indication and are not absolute. Unfortunately we can not replace or refund any material after it has been cut.
KUDU AND ORYX UPHOLSTERY LEATHER
The kudu and oryx (gemsbok) are both strikingly elegant and massive antelope types, and are of course also typically Southern African. Both antelope types have spectacular horns: The kudu is renowned for its long, spiral horns, while the oryx is renowned for its long, straight and slender horns (therefore its nickname “spear antelope”).
Both the kudu and the oryx skins are very popular for upholstery purposes, although very exclusive and difficult to find. Expect a unique African and robust look with natural scratches, scars and marks from both skins, due to the rustic bush habitat of these antelope types.
Did you know?
Kudu’s are great kickers and are capable of breaking a wild dog’s or a jackal’s neck or back, while they are also able to jump over a 5 foot fence from a standing start. The oryx is adapted to live in hot, dry areas where most animals cannot, while they are able to withstand temperatures ranging up to 45 degrees Celsius.
Please note: Although both skins are very exclusive, oryx skins are more easily available than kudu skins.
