Made in America!
Appearance – Comfort – Performance – is the mantra of Leathercraft craftsmanship. Leathercraft specializes in making high quality leather furniture, all handmade with your order selections by leather artisans in America.
For over 50 years, Leathercraft has been manufacturing the finest leather seating available, in terms of comfort, quality and durability. Located in the furniture center of America, Hickory North Carolina, Leathercraft has the best skilled craftspeople in the country. These leather artisans are the backbone of Leathercraft’s enduring quality. The following specialists produce Leathercraft upholstery: framer, springer, cushion and padding maker, leather marker, cutter, sewer, upholsterer, trimmer, brass nailer, and inspector. Each of these individual crafts people have signed their name with pride and knowledge that they are personally responsible for pleasing you and continuing the tradition of quality found here at Leathercraft.
Our construction techniques exceed industry standards in every detail. All components which comprise the interior of fine seating – from select hardwood frames to prime waterfowl down – are of the highest quality available. The leathers we offer are unmatched in the industry. We engineer each piece to meet your expectations and warrant each piece to do so.
Reducing our Footprint – As a citizen of the world it is prudent and socially responsible to manufacture product in the most efficient eco-friendly methodology possible. It is also good business. Below find a listing of items that reduce the footprint the manufacturing of our product places on the environment:
Upholstery – We continually strive to increase our efficiency in manufacturing our upholstery with less energy used per unit. We look for materials that we find sustainable or recycled sources. All Leathercraft upholstery is manufactured in North Carolina which reduces the urban foot print of the energy used to import product from abroad.
Seat and back cushions – Seat and back cushions can be specified in materials that are considerably more environment friendly. Seat cushions contain 20% soy bean oil, which reduces non-renewable components (oil) by 61% and reduces energy consumption by 23%. Polyester back cushions are manufactured with 100% recycled post consumer materials (soda bottles). Therefore, no new raw materials are committed to the manufacturing process. The cushion material meets California code TB-117.
Leather – Leathers are available that are vegetable tanned containing no chromium, which are 100% recyclable.
Framing – Over 90% of the lumber used in a frame comes from forests that are renewed and certified and adhere to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI).
Springs – The springs used in our product are manufactured from steel that is over 50% recycled materials.
Finishes – One hundred percent of our finishes are water based; no solvents are used.
Recycle – Leathercraft recycles: paper, cardboard, leather scraps, wood waste and heat generated machinery.

PURE ANILINE LEATHER POLICY: Leathercraft offers only the finest Pure Aniline leathers. These Pure Aniline Leathers produce the best “hand” or “feel” and reflect the true appearance of leather, including range marks, insect bites, fat wrinkles, healed scars and mild color variance. These natural characteristics are part of the prestige of owning Pure Aniline natural leathers and are not defects. Pure Aniline natural leathers are valued for their wonderful feel and uniqueness. However, they are not impervious to body oils, direct light or spills, as they have no (or minimal) protective finish applied to them. Due to their inherent characteristics, “Pure Aniline” leathers cannot be warranted. “Aniline Plus” leathers are natural leathers that include a surface protection finish applied during the tanning process that resists scratches, stains and fading from sunlight, similar to “Pure Aniline”,these “Aniline Plus” leathers are not warranted.
To ensure long life of this leather (Aniline Plus and Pure Aniline leather) furniture, it is the responsibility of the owner to protect the furniture from excessive exposure to sunlight, strong lighting and excessive heat which may result in fading or leather damage. After market leather cleaning products or leather care products should not be used other than those authorized by Leathercraft. Click here for leather cleaning and care information.
