The Scottish firm of Andrew Muirhead & Son is introducing a luxury leather called Arisaig, named after a section of Scotland’s west coast renowned for its natural beauty. According to the Glasgow-based company, it is made from the best quality hides from British beef cattle. The hides are put through a wet process to ensure a through-dye quality and they are then finished with a specially formulated resin top coat.
E-Leather, from the company of the same name, is leather, but not in a form that a cow ever wore. It’s a unique blend of untanned leather shavings and textiles that the Peterborough, England company has been developing over a period of 10 years. The product was introduced to the aviation industry at the Aircraft Interiors Expo 2007
in Hamburg, Germany.
