Echo leather is produced by a fifth-generation Italian tannery with an enduring reputation for quality and craftsmanship. Echo exhibits all the rich, subtle nuances of authentic leather.

Tanned with waters from the Italian Alps, its soft oil tannage and paraffin wax finish expose the natural beauty of the English bull hide canvas. The Echo name reflects the vibrant pull-up effect of this versatile leather. When upholstered, the crisp, transparent surface will reveal the intense color that resonates below.

You should expect significant variation in color from hide to hide and even within a hide, but the overall effect when upholstered is simply stunning. The natural finish will reveal the life of the animal, including fat lines and healed scars.

While Echo has a soft, supple hand, it is still cowhide, so it is inherently durable. It will provide many, many years of comfort and beauty. Echo will burnish and mark with use. A dog’s nails, even a fingernail, can leave a mark. These marks are not scratches, as they are only in the top layer of the wax and can generally be rubbed out with the warmth of your finger, or heat from a hairdryer on a hot setting. However, life is short, so Echo is best used by customers who can embrace the patina that develops in the leather over time, and appreciate the natural character of the leather. Sitting regularly on your Echo leather pieces will do much of the buffing out for you.

Echo is a versatile leather that is well suited for contemporary or traditional pieces, and it is an outstanding selection for tufted pieces as its suppleness allows our upholsterers to create a great result.
