Founded by engineers in 1990, American Leather® was created on the belief that three months is too long to ever wait for a piece of customized furniture. Our founders believed that 12 weeks was too long to take an order from concept to completion. In the time since, we have set the standard in the industry for custom furniture.
As a founding member of the Sustainable Furniture Council, a nonprofit organization created to promote sustainable practices in the furniture industry, American Leather® is committed to making our products and manufacturing operations environmentally friendly.
American Leather is a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council. The goal of the council is to raise awareness of the importance of sustainability. The SFC helps companies adopt eco-friendly practices. This certification assures customers that they are supporting businesses that operate sustainably.
Earth-friendly: American Leather hides are dyed using water-based pigments, this helps prevent toxic materials from entering the home and atmosphere. Additionally, our leather scraps are recycled and used to produce small leather goods like tennis shoes
Sustainable: American Leathers wood frames are harvested from sustainable forests and are precision-engineered to create as little scrap as possible — any additional scrap is recycled as fill for pet bedding. We take special care down to the glue—all water based and chemical free.
Recyclable: Between the wood frames and masterful upholstery American Leathers state-of-the-art cushions are also recyclable. The brand only uses high-resiliency foam that helps prevents ozone depletion.
Please review the care label of your furniture. Under normal usage and conditions, regular dry-cloth dusting and vacuum cleaning in crevices and along the bottom are all that is necessary to clean your furniture.
Do not use: saddle soap, cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, varnish, abrasive cleaners, detergent soaps or ammonia water. Always try any cleaning method in a hidden area first to verify the results. For minor or slight scratches on the surface, use a soft cloth or clean fingers to gently buff the scratch. If needed, moisten lightly with distilled water to work scratches out. *The manufacturer is not responsible for damage incurred while cleaning.
