Heavy Metal is a full grain hand selected leather from the finest European and New Zealand hides. Using state of the art processes, a metallic foil effect is applied to the surface resulting in a fusion of an artisan soft hand and feel with ultra modern finish. The beauty of this leather is complimented by large clean cutting surfaces and excellent yields. The durable finish enables this leather to be suitable for most public and private environments.

REACH (EC 1907/2006) compliant production aims to improve the protection of human and environmental health. Processed using low emission mineral tanning formulas which are environmentally respectful, the hides are retanned in aged oak drums using vegetable agents, natural fat liquors, oils and dyes that ensure the leather is properly through dyed. Natural color variations may occur even within the same dye lot.
