CrestJMT Leather has been working tirelessly throughout 2013 to develop a new range of leathers, which offer the same characteristics as its existing collection with a new charm.
CrestJMT understand the constraints in the leather industry, and have combated this by investing in Brazilian hides as an alternative to European articles. South American hides – which are not used as often as their European counterparts – have a cost advantage and are now considered a worthy alternative for many upholstery manufacturers.
Highly-skilled finishing technicians at the CrestJMT tannery in Vestenanova, Italy, have developed and enhanced the finishing process for the hides, making the standard like for like with European leathers.
To this end CrestJMT have added three new ranges using a Brazilian hyde – Stella, Bronx and Hemmingway.
Stella has been designed with a subtle natural grain, which has been slightly buffed and finished off with a waxy coat to enhance its distinctive colour. It is available in eight colours.
Bronx, also available in eight colours, holds a heavyweight natural grain, which is slightly buffed to give a waxy finishing coat. This production offers a high level of light fastness, stain-resistance and durability.
Hemmingway has been designed as a natural grain semi-aniline finished hide, slightly buffed and milled to ensure a luxurious finish. The elegant, muted colour palette comes in a range of 20 colours, each specifically produced to enhance any design without overpowering the look.
