Introducing our

heritage leather range

Our Heritage range represents the softest and most luxurious leather we can offer. A carefully waxed and polished finish brings out the natural beauty of the thoughtfully selected hides.

Colour Range

heritage leather colour range

All our leathers come in hand selected colour palettes curated by the S.W. James team. Each colour has been deliberately selected to provide shades and blends that look different on every Chesterfield sofa or armchair we produce.

To truly understand why our S.W. James leathers are so beautiful you need to experience them. You need to touch them, smell the rich fragrance of the Italian leather, see the intense colour.

the most luxurious

softest leather in our range

At S.W. James we love the Heritage range. It offers a luxurious and beautifully soft contrast to our rugged ‘lived-in’, vintage leathers. If you are in search of a more refined and traditional looking finish for your S.W. James, this leather will provide the sumptuous luxury you are looking for.

Carefully selected

Luxuriously Soft Leather

Only the most carefully selected hides are used for this range. Unlike lesser leathers, this allows for each separate hide to be used in its most natural state, with minimal treatment. Allowing the leather hide to retain its natural, luxuriously soft feel.

Treated to perfection

Beautifully Oiled And Waxed

During the colour treatment process, this leather is rested in oil to make it beautifully soft to the touch. The surface of the leather is then gently waxed to provide a glowing sheen.

Charming

Leather In Its Most Natural State

By honouring the natural characteristics the hides collect over time (scars, blemishes, marks) – each piece of furniture covered in Heritage leather gains its own inconsistent charm and beauty.
