Edelman Russian Leather
The Modern Version of an Ancient Product
Since the time of Marco Polo, who wrote about it in his journals, or perhaps before, "Russia" leather fascinated Europeans. Its exceptional durability, its characteristic red hue and cross-hatched surface pattern and, especially, its intoxicating fragrance led to its widespread popularity.
In Boston, chairs upholstered with it started to show up in estate inventories as early as 1647, less than 30 years after the landing of the Mayflower.
Matte & Gloss
Matte and Gloss plays with extremes. It plays with the subtle shadowing matte and gloss can create when next to each other.
Matte & Gloss plays with how light is absorbed and reflected on surfaces.
The way that the light hits a mirror or a piece of glass versus the way that light is absorbed into a piece of stone.
Drawing inspiration from the gloss that rain makes on fresh asphalt…the contrast of a matte quilted leather against the gloss of a fur trim on a classic Chanel coat.
Leather & Lace
Reminiscent of Spanish lace handcrafted using age-old techniques - long gone workrooms of Slovakia, Belgium, Hungaria - similar to the way Edelman uses age-old inspired techniques to make leather. Techniques modernized through the use of laser etching and cut technology.
Gutsy & modern…drawing inspiration from:
