The Moore & Giles Heritage Collection
This film shares the highlights of our story - from 1933 to today. We are a leather company and this is our Heritage - a collection of leathers that have shaped Moore & Giles and our story.
We believe when leather is crafted responsibly it tells the greatest sustainability story on earth. Join us in celebrating this amazing natural material.
The Seven Hills Collection | Moore & Giles
The story begins in Lynchburg, Virginia, known as the City of Seven Hills. Every hide in this collection was sourced from small farms that, like Moore & Giles, have called Virginia home for decades. Moore & Giles partnered with Seven Hills abattoir, a local processor who provides premium beef to restaurants throughout Virginia, to reimagine their presumed byproduct as an unrealized asset. Originally destined for a landfill, the hides were instead transported to St. Louis, where they were transformed into leather by Hermann Oak Leather in the same vats and vegetable tannage used to tan the harnesses supplied to westward-moving wagon trains starting in 1881. The quality and allure of the collection is matched by the sustainability and singularity of this locally sourced leather.
David Coggins Club Chair | Moore & Giles Leather
We first learned about David Coggins’ decrepit leather chair via Instagram. The NYT bestselling author posted that it "may be time to say goodbye" to his family club chair. Being the leather lovers that we are, we stepped in to see if we could bring this beloved chair back to life. Within a few days, we personally scooped up the chair from his West Village apartment and got right to work. Watch this video to learn more about this story, including stunning before and after footage, and to see the final reveal at our headquarters in Virginia.

Understanding the Flow of Color in Natural Leather
Just like a brush on a canvas, natural leather creates a beautiful flow of color when upholstered correctly. In this video we show you an amplified example of how two extremely different hides of the same color come together to make one beautiful chair. Special thanks to our friends at Wesley Hall for the access and insight on how a high-level piece of leather furniture is made using the finest leather in the world.
