Our leather desk mats are made of vegetable tanned saddle leather imported from Italy. This type of leather is thick and durable, and its ‘half-dressed’ state develops a new character and patina over time. In a search to find the most minimal way to introduce this ‘living’ material into daily life, the desk mat is a warm, inviting element that very simply elevates the experience of sitting at a desk. Leather marks easily and needs to be treated carefully but once it’s in place, it can take lifetimes of use. Try to keep it from dust and use it. If you have to store it, keep it flat in an acid proof envelope.
