notes from natasha
This line of particularly rich colors, from one of our favorite Italian tanneries, has served our designer community well for years. These leathers are known for their pull up character and soft hand. Many of the 'mont blanc' colors have been developed in Italy exclusively for R&T. Uniquely, these leathers gain more texture with wear as the grain lifts and expands over time. Beautiful to see. Likewise its signature sheen will also change from a sheen to a more luminous finish.
In house available, no up-charge for custom designs.
Our premium leathers are sourced from top tanneries around the world including, Italy, France, Germany and the United States. Pine has a natural luminous finish, soft deep rich color, with a slight wrinkle effect.
