Painted Plains Hides
Hand-dyed Leather Hides for Interiors
Throughout time, patterns have served as a meaningful archaeological tool. They decorate and communicate. They are functional. They are symbolic. And above all, they tell a story.
This collection explores the dynamic tapestry of surfaces, textures, and colors in the city around us. Thick peeling layers of paint over old brick walls offer remnants of a rich past. Worn stair treads provide visual cues on how to navigate our way. While grids of scaffolding over glass high-rises build a narrative for what’s to come. Woven together, these patterns create a visual story and record of our lives in the city.
Each piece is made from durable full grain leather and is hand-dyed in our Brooklyn studio. These hides are designed to be used as rugs, wall hangings and upholstery.
The Painted Plains collection utilizes whole hides and bold graphics to create a modern juxtaposition between material and pattern. Water-based stain penetrates the surface of the hide for a durable finish and beautiful patina. Each rug features our signature stamped logo and has a naturally unique outline shape.
These hides are designed to be used as:
- Wall Hangings
- Furniture upholstery
- Wall upholstery
