Why order Swatches
✔ Touch and Feel
To truly understand how inviting our leathers and fabrics are, let your senses explore the textures for themselves.
To get an accurate sense of our colour range, you need to experience them first hand. (We have been as precise as we can to represent accurate colour on our website, but it's always best to see colours for yourself.)
✔ Wear, Tear & Characteristics
Touch them, scratch them, spill on them. Try out the resilience of our fabrics and leathers for yourself to judge if they right for you.
