Inspired by the big city, the Urban Luxury line combines rich color, supple soft feel and premium top grain cowhide to create a leather that exudes luxury. These sophisticated leathers are made on a slightly heavyweight upholstery hide that gives the leather a full body that is extra plush. The grain is a natural mill pebble that has subtle variations across the hide as nature intended. While luxurious, the Urban leathers are strong, resistant to wear and appropriate for everyday use.

The Naturals are exceptionally soft but resistant to wear - ideal for home furnishings with medium traffic use. LHS is proud to offer this stunning group of premium Italian leathers at wholesale prices!
A lot of distress leather has come and gone but these are some of the best. These oil/wax based leathers are each unique - Mustang has a classic, rugged look; Texas Distress bursts with color like only the finest pull up leather; Durango and Badlands are tough, plain and simple with maximum distress and a hard wax feel that softens to perfection with use. These distress leathers are each unique and undeniably some of the best that leather can get!
Dakota is a stunning, "rustic" full grain cowhide that is dyed by hand to accentuate its natural characteristics. The Dakotas are milled (tumbled) in large wood drums to enhance the natural grain while creating a supple hand and drape. Hues of warm color ebb and flow across the Dakotas as a result of natural variations in the leather's grain. Subtle natural characteristics such as healed scars, bites and brands are all finished directly into the hide giving added character and beauty. After hand coloring, Dakota is conditioned with a silky soft topcoat providing significant protection against wear and tear. We are very proud of our Dakota line - leather designed to capture the wild and free spirit of the open plains! Produced in the USA.
The Jazz Set are leathers that really can groove. Produced on full grain cowhide the leathers are colored in large drums using premium aniline dyes and then "kissed" with pigment to balance out color. Subtle natural markings liked healed scars or brands are not sanded down (like most leathers) but finished directly into the hide adding depth and character. The last step is conditioning with a light wax protective topcoat that has just the right feel. We considered the Jazz Set to be a "light distress" leather because finishing leaves the leather in a near natural state that will change and enhance over time. The addition of a wax to the leather also gives a lovely "pop" of brighter color with regular use as the leather is stretched or scratched. Semi aniline is the "gold standard" of upholstery leather and we are pleased to offer these premium leathers at true wholesale prices!
For years the leather industry has tried to design a machine that could make hand wipe leather and we are a little smug when we say they failed! True hand wipe leather is a rich multi tone color pallet that is built one color at time, carefully blending layers of color into a warm mosaic that evokes a strong emotion. Hand wiping is more than technique, it is art and we have some of the best leather artisans! Our hand wipes are first milled in large wooden drums becoming soft and supple. Next, comes a meticulous four stage hand dying process using premium aniline dyes. The last step is conditioning with a silky soft protective topcoat. While these leathers exude style and luxury they are not Southern Belles - designed to withstand daily use and appropriate for all furniture upholstery applications. The Handwipes are exclusive LHS collection proudly produced in the USA.
