Jamie Stern’s Galapagos features a naturalistic embossed pattern inspired by the organic contours of tortoise shells found on the leather’s namesake island. Produced on sides (half hides), Galapagos is embossed with maximum pressure, dwell and heat to ensure that the leather’s precise pattern is consistent and even throughout. After the print is applied, the sides are then finished with a semi-aniline topcoat that provides an even base coloration and protects the leathers from scratching, staining and fading in sunlight. After this initial coloring, each side receives a second hand-wiped coat of pigment to emphasize the pattern and create a gorgeous two-tone effect.
Produced exclusively in our New York finishing plant, Galapagos makes for a one-of-a-kind upholstery leather that seamlessly blends natural beauty with artisanal craftsmanship. Please inquire about custom color availability.Spec Sheet
