In the leather business, it all starts with the raw material, the hides. We select only in the top 2% of all available hides. Our tanneries prepare what they call the “Edelman selection” for us to review.
We only want the best quality. This allows for a more natural, more beautiful product. The higher the quality, the higher the price, the more valuable the leather is.
The difference in durability is huge. The difference in aesthetic can be monumental.
