What are leather floor and wall tiles?
Leather floor and wall tiles are made from vegetable-tanned cowhide. The floor and wall tiles are made from the same material used to manufacture shoe soles. Vegetable tannage, which uses tree bark as the tanning agent, creates a very durable and versatile product. After tanning the tiles are dyed with a combination of aniline dye and wax solution, which is driven into the tile under pressure to create a beautiful finish. Tiles are 100% full natural grain leather.
Why buy leather floor or wall tiles?

As soon as you enter a room with a leather floor or wall, you are surrounded by a subtle, inviting aroma. Warm to the touch, your leather floor and wall tiles will provide years of enjoyment.
