Padfield leather is 100% tanned in England. The majority of our hides originate from British farms, with a small percentage sourced from Irish farms. The United Kingdom has a long and proud history of pastoral farming. We believe that sourcing locally is the most responsible and sustainable option.
We often find luxury leather accessories to be unnecessarily heavy. At Padfield we solved this by slightly reducing the thickness of our leather, to achieve lighter weight accessories with the same excellent natural qualities. With durability in mind, during tanning we treat our leather with a water resistant technology that helps it to repel water. We believe that small thoughtful changes add up to make our accessories better.
Padfield Pebble Grain Leather
Our Pebble Grain leather is a top-grain water resistant leather. It has a rich even colour and a beautiful even grain finish. Dyed entirely through the hide, this leather will not show scratches as easily as surface tanned leather.
Padfield Embossed Nubuck Leather
With a soft handle our grey embossed Nubuck leather has a beautiful distinct texture reminiscent of an exotic animal hide. Developed with our tannery, this stunning leather is unique to Padfield.
Padfield Grey Smooth Leather
Our grey leather tote bags and accessories are lined with our smooth grey leather. As with our Pebble Grain leather and our embossed Nubuck leather, our grey lining leather is tanned all the way through.
Padfield Suede Leather
We say, be bold, make a statement. Our suede leather lining was chosen for its rich colour, durability, and beautiful soft hand-feel. Found lining the majority of our black and tan leather accessories, our British suede gives them an unexpected burst of colour. Undeniably luxurious.
Caring for your Padfield
As a natural material the leather will change over time and use. You can help to protect and prolong the life of your leather accessories by:
Applying a leather nano protector spray can help protect the leather (always carry out a patch test in a discreet area first)
If the leather becomes wet wipe dry with a soft cloth and leave to dry naturally
Try avoid excessive exposure to direct sunlight when not in use
Store your Padfield accessory in the cotton dust bag provided when not in use
General Colour Care Advice
This advice is not specific to Padfield, however we do recommend that you consider the qualities of coloured materials when deciding how to use your leather accessories. As a dyed material darker colour leathers can transfer colour to lighter colour materials. Fabrics, such as denim, can also transfer colour on to lighter leathers. As suede leather is more susceptible to transferring colour it is recommended that you do not place lighter colour materials inside suede lined accessories. Please note that as colour transfer between coloured materials is a known quality of these materials, Padfield cannot be held responsibility for any damage caused due to colour transfers of any kind.
