who we are

Luxury lives at Edelman. At Edelman, we inspire the global design community, who create the spaces where we live, work, and explore, with the greatest collection of quality leathers.


timeless appeal

Great leather moves you. It evokes a memory, a mood, a place. It welcomes you — complementing your designs with a luxurious contemporary touch — and always inspires. The better that leather tells its story, the better you can tell yours.

true character

For decades, Edelman has championed a hands-on approach to natural materials, celebrating the spirit of leather. This has been our mission since Teddy and Arthur Edelman launched their leather careers in the 1950s, first in fashion and later in interiors. Our long-established heritage remains devoted to quality, craftsmanship, and design.

the art of craft

We select carefully-sourced hides and partner with generations-old European tanneries that combine craft traditions with modern technology. Master artisans, who pursue perfection in every detail, hand finish our leather to protect its natural character. Our leather wears in, not out, becoming more beautiful over time.

unparalleled choice

Creating exactly what you envision is the ultimate luxury. Our collections offer beauty and performance in a breadth of unexpected styles, textures, and colors — and our unsurpassed custom capabilities will take your designs anywhere you imagine.
