Product Line: Vintage Engraved Cowhide (VIE)
Vintage Engraved Cowhide is firm, vegetable-tanned cowhide that is gaufrage-embossed and hand-rubbed to appear worn and distressed with a fine patina. Vintage Engraved catptures the character of Old World hand-tooled European leathers. Gaufrage is a unique embossing process that creates upholstery leather of exceptional softness and beauty. The design impression is transferred to the leather by an engraved roller under high heat and low pressure for a natural hand without pattern match lines. The firmness of the leather and the contrasting appearance created by the gaufrage-embossing and hand-rubbing make this unique leather suitable for case goods, wall coverings, accessories and ceiling tiles as well as for upholstery.
The characteristic finish effect of this leather artwork is applied by hand; the resulting variance in design and color are part of its natural beauty.
