Leather and reinforcement
Elenbaas Atelier works with leather suppliers from the province of North Brabant, in the south of The Netherlands. These suppliers exclusively trade in batches of leather remains from large-scale manufacturers. The leather itself is originally from Italian tanneries.
We work with cow, calf and lambskin leather with a natural grain. The leather species are carefully selected by terms of quality, flexibility and colour. For the construction of leather objects we use reinforcement. It is always hidden between different layers of leather and provides for solidity and volume.
Hardware and supplies
We use as little hardware as possible. When we do use hardware, suppliers of high quality brass hardware have carefully selected it. Threads, glue and edge paint form the basis of every designed leather object.
