The birthday of a certain romantic Saint is around the corner and ‘love’ seems to be on everyone’s mind. Shop windows display it, the radio sings it and magazines speak of insightful tips. Leaving the buying and proposing to you, we get a little self-indulgent and talk about our one, true love. You guessed it. Leather! And like any adulation worth its salt, we are here to tell the world the many reasons why we love our leather.
Its Lasting Beauty
Sure, it gets a few wrinkles and marks along the way, but leather is one of those rare materials that actually gets better with time. Its beauty transforms through the years as it passes down generations. Adapting and softening with every use, a classic work of leather is a silent spectator to a life’s adventures.
Its Loyalty Stands the Test of Time
Tanned leather is a loyal companion and its durability has stood the test of time. From leather gloves to sofas, its resilience was and continues to be one of its most enviable features. Strong enough to weather every journey yet soft enough to cushion every treasure, leather truly lasts a lifetime in all its luxurious splendour.
It Is Au Naturale
Unlike its synthetic imitators, leather poses no harm to the environment when treated under standardized guidelines. Derived from the hide of animals, pure leather is a naturally obtained material which when treated right can be remarkably non-polluting. Even after tanning, it retains its natural properties making it entirely biodegradable. Another reason why TLB takes great pride in our conscientiously-sourced leather and its hand-crafted accessories.
It Carries Oodles of Oomph
An undeniable quality of the leather is the volumes it speaks of its wearer. Whether in the form of an accessory, garment or décor, its inherent state of luxury is reflected iconically on its owner. Many may wish they could carry it off, but only a chosen few can do so with oomph. It is this very panache that makes The Leather Boutique the place for your everyday luxury.
Its Timeless Charm
Remember that bag you loved which began to chip away and crumble? That was faux leather and its time-sensitive nature. A pure leather bag, or any other leather accessory, will neither crumble nor lose its charm. The beauty of its grain unfolds as it moulds itself to its repurposed form. And the fear of the occasional stain is now a thing of the past with our repair and maintenance services. So go ahead and indulge, if you love it too!
