Leather is ideal for personal goods, but its sound insulation properties and comfort underfoot make it suitable for architectural applications too. “Leather tiles provide a certain warm touch; subtle aroma; and clean, refined lines,” Giulietti says, “and they just look great.” Blackstock Leather's tiles are made in standard and custom sizes and colors from the same material used for shoe soles.
