Your Personality. Add it with Townsend Leather.

We are craftspeople and artisans of leather, not just distributors or marketers.

For us, leather is a life passion.

We are the manufacturer, which means we can custom produce any color, sheen, pattern, embossing, texture… any leather.

Your projects, your designs, your dreams... they are saturated in your personality and we want to do all we can to spotlight that personality. Our passion for leather extends beyond just the end material, but to the entire process, from sourcing to packaging, we do it all ourselves, and we do it with heart.

Whether it’s a perfect color combination, a texture or pattern you need to see on leather, or a totally new technique - we love to craft it for you.

Work with us from your Lightbox, your mood boards, your design sketches, photographs, or even scribbles on a napkin… our team is uniquely skilled to utilize our state-of-the-art manufacturing campus to create the perfect leather.

Our world-class color-matching team can match any color, hue, value, and chroma of any paint chip, carpet or fabric sample or any available color reference, including Pantone.

We can harness our largest-in-the-world embossing library to match or create any pattern with embossing plates and rolls. We have a graphic design team ready to custom craft designs and all the tools and expertise to press them into reality.

Together we can explore every option and create that one-of-a-kind look.

Once you have an idea of what you want, and you’re interested in a few test samples, we can quickly produce strike-off samples of custom colors and textures for you. That way you will actually be able to see and touch the leather that was inspired by your vision.

At the heart of Townsend’s creative design solutions is a service unique in the industry, one that unites the creativity and vision of the interior designer with the experience, skill, and workmanship of the leather manufacturer.

For over 50 years Townsend Leather has led the industry in color-matching, custom capabilities, company-culture (we love what we do, who we do it with, and who we do it for!), and quality. We put care for craft, people, and quality in everything we do and we look forward to custom-crafting that care for you too.
