How the leather is made.
Recognising quality, luxury and beauty in leather is only partially due to our visual experience. One of our strongest emotional triggers is our sense of touch, which is why the softness and supple ‘hand’ (feel) registered in our sensory minds, lingers longest. We appreciate that our furniture is selected on the basis of style (look), tactility (touch) and those enduring qualities that evoke positive memory associations through smell and sense of comfort.
James Stewart Furniture is invested in awakening all these senses using the time-honoured, world-language of leather.
Our partnership with Leather Miracles gives us access to an exclusive group of the top 2 - 3% of hides found worldwide which are sourced and manufactured for our application. The tanning process developed by Leather Miracles, which extends for as long as 24-36 hours, has been fine-tuned over several decades to determine the optimum softness that each hide can achieve. This ensures that the timeless appeal and durable character of the leather also offers the sensory experience that comes from investment in the refinement of craft and intimate understanding of this alluring, natural material.
