Introducing our

Rustic Leather Range

At S.W. James, we love our rustic leather range. A tough, hand-finished leather with a suede-like feel, it offers a thick and rugged finish. Since it's only very lightly waxed and treated, it has a dryer feel to the touch - in addition to a warm, natural patina that will age perfectly over time.

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.

A quick introduction

About our Rustic Leather

Rustic Leather

Thick and Rugged

A beautifully, hand-pulled leather with a suede-like, worn texture to the touch; we love our Rustic leather range because it bears all the hallmarks of a wonderfully aged piece of leather. We have left all imperfections - such as scars and marks - in the leather, giving each piece a truly unique, rugged feel.

Textured feel

Natural Finish

When wrapped in rustic leather, our sofas resemble a long-standing, dependable friend; a friend that will welcome you with a warm, friendly hug every time you sink into him. Our rustic leather has a dry and textured feel - resemblant of suede - with a warm, natural patina that will age beautifully over time. At heart, this hand-finished and hand-pulled leather oozes character and charm.

Long lasting

Sturdy and robust leather

Our Rustic leather range is thick and rugged, and will hold up to some tough love; perfect for kids that like to climb, or those with slightly over-zealous pets that love to join their owner on the sofa to keep them company.
