John Cole Collections

We select only the highest quality top grain hides available, and use an aniline finish to enhance the natural characteristics of the hide. Aniline finishing allows you to see and feel the essential qualities of genuine leather, which cannot be duplicated synthetically.

John Cole Collections products become more soft and supple over time and will develop a rich patina, giving them true character.
