LEATHER WORLD

Technical machines to work with leather

Leather products have always had a great value, they are delicate but at the same time they have a huge durability, and they are always linked to luxury.

That is why, as we explained in another entry of our blog about the best types of leather, every skin must be treated with specific techniques as they have a different behaviour and characteristics. For that reason, at our artisan workshop in Ubrique we have the best leather experts and we use the best techniques and machines to obtain exclusive, bespoke and luxury leather products.

Depending on the piece requested by our customer, the leather should have a specific thickness. This way, if we need the leather to be easier to handle, we should make it thinner. If our intention is leaving leather have a body and be bulkier and rigid, we should not sharpen it.

When we have to acquire a specific thickness, specially for the large pieces like for example the exclusive leather decoration items, the leather panels are very wide so we make use of machinery such as the splitting leather machine, which allows the leather to have a particular thickness in all its surface. This is a machine with a delicate precision and this operation requires having a good knowledge of the machine and also the leather it will modify.
