  1. TIMESHIFT CARRIAGE - BROWN - 1.4/1.6mm
    £5.36

    Out of stock

    Originally, Carriage Grain was a somewhat crudely base-dyed full grain cow hide in a brown or tan shade made predominately for the seating in horse drawn vehicles. It was embossed with a bold grain pattern and was waxed or greased to protect the seats from the inclement weather (no consideration for clothing here it would appear!). Other colours were achieved by painting a pigment coat of the required colour on the grain side, over the top of the original brown or tan shade. Dirt and grime would deposit in the crevices of the embossed pattern. After long term exposure to extremes of weather the leather seats would crack in parts through the coloured pigment surface revealing the base-dye shade. With the advent of motorised vehicles the wax and oil became unnecessary, however excepting this, the leather continued to be made in the same way for many years. Today this yesteryear patina is greatly sought after in the refurbishment of vintage and classic vehicles. Timeshift Carriage has been made in England and developed following lengthy discussions about the three colourway mixes required to make each shade: base-dye; pigment coat and dark crevices. The result being a historic nod to a period of time that has long since passed. Availabile in three classic colours.
