FJ Ratchford are delighted to be working officially and directly with Franz Hoffman Fine Leather of Germany, whom have a history of supplying quality leathers for so many different applications. Ratchfords and Franz Hoffman Fine Leathers have both been selling leather skins for over 100 years, since the days when leather was used on all shoes, on ledgers and account books, on furniture etc. Nowadays our leather is still used on the most beautiful books, some of which do not require embellishment, as the finished leather is a joy to behold on its own. As well as bespoke books, albums, table inlays, restoring vehicles, packaging etc, our leathers are also used on large commercial runs, where skins are pre-cut to a required size. This year we have increased our range of shades in Karawan goatskins, and in addition have a stock range of calf, bovine and pig skins. Skins can be supplied from stock, natural medieval style, embossed, glazed, unglazed, alum tawed (tanned) or bright white, sprinkled or marbled finishes. Full buffalo calf leather hardcover, rounded back. Per scoring paper inlay on front, foilings. Gilded on open side. A master piece in book binding. Our skins are selected from a number of reliable and reputable sources, and we take great care in ensuring our leathers meet the high standards expected by our customers. We understand that leather has a wide number of uses, and will do all we can to ensure our customers receive the quality required. Our range of leathers are priced in a way that reflects our commitment to the art of bookbinding and rare book conservation. In addition to leathers, we stock leather dyes, leather cleaners, and polish, along with our Scharf-Fix 2000 leather pairing machine. We may make a small surcharge for leather swatch cards, but this is redeemable from your first leather order.
