From the fashion runways to airport runways, Townsend Leather has turned this fall’s fashion trend of lace into a new aircraft interiors product line, which makes its debut here at NBAA. According to the third-generation family-owned company, the new gaufrage-embossed center-cut hide, entitled Lace Weave, combines the delicacy of lace with the durability and performance of its highest-quality leather. The product has no pattern-match lines and can be customized with numerous finishing techniques including hand-dippings and antique effects.

If romance is high on the list of interior design, Townsend Leather has a perfect idea: a new lace weave pattern. “In fashion, lace gives a romantic feel to any outfit, so why not do the same for your [aircraft] interior?” asks the company.

It’s not a true weave, but an embossing pattern that allows availability of full hides. For most part the tones are dark neutrals; new patterns use some different colors.
