These four introductions range from luxurious full grains with pure aniline finishes (Avignon and Formula One) to textural marvels including a smooth grain nubuck (Momentum) and a pre-worn top grain (Belmont) that greatly expand Jamie Stern’s 800+ standard leathers.
The new Jamie Stern leathers are here and they are all in-stock!
Avignon is a premier upholstery leather with a pure aniline finish. A sister product to classic Jamie Stern qualities such as Bernini and Provence, this full grain leather is meant to wear in and become more beautiful with time and use. Its smooth glazed surface will look handsome when first upholstered, but will only become more so in five and ten years’ time.
Belmont is a rich, complex pure aniline leather that features a sophisticated two-tone finish and a soft, velvety texture. This stylish combination is the result of a specialized manual treatment in which each hide is gently kneaded to liven up its surface. The hides are then pure aniline-dyed and finished with waxes to emphasize the contrast of the natural grain.
Formula One represents upholstery leather at its most sophisticated and beautiful. Produced on large full grain European hides, this leather is simply pure aniline-dyed and finished with natural waxes and oils. This minimalist finishing process emphasizes the organic beauty of the leather and creates a luxurious pull-up effect.
Momentum is an elegant nubuck leather with an irresistibly smooth hand and a supple suede-like nap. A sister product to Jamie Stern’s Lickety Split, Momentum is gently leveled to minimize the natural grain while still retaining the renowned strength and durability of traditional leather. Each hide of Momentum is pure aniline-dyed for color without receiving any additional pigment.
