What’s in a name?

 

Free

Natural, free from artificial processing and pigments. Just Natural Beauty.

Hand

All our leathers are finished entirely by hand, no machines. 

Free Hand

The freedom of creativity comes from our experience and expertise in providing the best natural hand finished leathers.

Uniquely Natural

Not all leathers are created equal.  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 brand new, they do not last.  Scratches, stains, and stretching can quickly degrade the surface and furniture soon wears out.

Free Hand Leather Co. uses 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.

It is important to note that the Free Hand Leather Co. leathers are created using high quality Top Grain hides, that are intentionally finished to be unique and individual. They do not align to standardised uniform colour grade scales and finish expectations. Colour can vary within the same product; furniture arms may vary from the seat cushion, back etc. Natural markings and scars are prevalent in Free Hand leathers as they are considered a valuable characteristic of leather.
