How much leather do I need?
It’s a question we answer everyday. Here are some of our recommendations on how to calculate how much leather you will need to complete your next design project. If you have questions please contact our Customer Service Team, and to sample any of our leathers the best place to start is always by color. Feel free to use this as a guide, but it’s always best to confirm with your upholsterer.
