Howe, Natural Maroc in Slate
Howe insists on using the traditional method of slow tree bark tanning before drum dyeing each leather to shade, resulting in high quality, true ‘full grain’ leather. Each skin possesses a beautiful, unique grain pattern, much like a fingerprint. Finished with a light layer of natural wax, this rich ‘Cherry’ red vegetable-tanned leather develops a gentle patina with time and use.
Goatskin is a very durable leather with minimal stretch and a flexible, supple handle. These qualities make it ideal for all types of upholstery, such as deep button-tufting, desk and table inlay, bookbinding, and for use in accessories and clothes. Its enduring robust character also makes it particularly popular in high-traffic commercial areas, like hotels and restaurants.
The goats live a free range life, roaming fields and lush scrubland in rural India. Because of this, the skins display unique marks and patterns that have naturally occurred — these can include scratches and blemishes, occasionally the odd small hole, differences in grain texture, or a dappling in color. These characteristics occur on each skin to some degree, and should be embraced as the individuality which makes this natural material so beautiful.
Skins can be successfully displayed using their suede side, although some dust and therefore color-release can occur when the leather is new.
