Kensington Borough

This polished urban leather has character and contrast to add depth to any style. Kensington Borough is made using European raw material eyed with a combination of wax and oil and color that is impregnated into the leather to create an article that will burst with color as you pull, stretch and handle the leather. Referred to as a” Pull-Up” in the leather industry Kensington Borough will exhibit all the natural characteristic of a “pull-up” leather. As the leather is pulled tight the color will lighten and change to create depth with the color illusion. This is an extraordinary product but needs to be understood no two hides are exactly the same and color variation is part of this leather.
