Upholstery and tile material made of recycled leather
Spinneybeck’s Recycled Leather is taken from shoe-sole scraps, ground up and mixed with a water-based adhesive that acts as a binder. The resulting compound is used as the backer for the Spinneybeck leather tiles. These tiles can be used in a wide range of vertical and upholstery applications and are available in a variety of colors and shapes. Unlike traditional leather tiles that offer little or no resistance to abrasion, fading, and staining, Spinneybeck leather tiles receive a light application of a water-repellent finish, which is absorbed into the tiles and becomes an integral part of the leather surface.
