Pewter is a 'bridge neutral.' This is a color and tone that works well to bridge two other colors in one's design. Developed for us years ago. Pewter is slightly less shimmery than pyrite and slightly more grey.
Pewter is a soft leather with a subtle metallic sheen and slight texture. It is resistant to water and weather and suitable for everyday use. All metallic leathers should be kept safe from scratching. This swatch is approx 2"x2" for previewing. Swatches are final sale.
