A variety of products, including Belting Leather, can be die or lasercut into shapes and patterns for a variety of applications including vertical installations.
Debossing and Embossing
Debossing imprints a logo or graphic image as a depression into leather leaving a debossed imprint. Whereas embossing creates a raised relief design. Each produces striking, multi-dimensional design and an unexpected texture in full grain leather.
Historically the art of laser engraving or laser etching was used to create intricate patterns and designs predominately on materials such as wood and glass. Spinneybeck extends this technique to full grain leather combining the beauty and warmth of a natural product with the precise detailing allowed by laser technology.
Fluting in architecture is the shallow groves running vertically along a surface and is most common in columns or pilasters. On Custom Wall Panels, leather is pinched and stitched in place, creating a unique treatment that creates a subtle linear patterning.
Perforating leather creates small 0.050 in (1.27 mm) to 0.085 in (2.16 mm) holes in a set pattern adding a subtle, contemporary patterning to upholstery or architectural products. Any Spinneybeck leather may be perforated with nine standard patterns that play with geometry and repetition.
Stitching and Quilting
Sewing or stitching, the art of binding objects together with a needle and thread, dates back to prehistoric times. For thousands of years sewing was done exclusively by hand. However, the invention of the sewing machine brought a revolution into the industry by making it easy for anyone to stitch and sew in minutes. The first practical sewing machine came when a French tailor, Barthelemy Thimonnier, devised and patented a machine in 1930. On Custom Wall Panels, machine stitching is available as straight lines of stitching or four standard quilted patterns in thirteen standard colors of durable nylon thread.
Embroidery is a distinctive service to embellish any standard product or create custom, bespoke designs. The origins of embroidery can be traced back to the 5th century BC and the demand for intricate and brilliantly colored decoration. Later, the Industrial Revolution mechanized the process and computerization further improved it.
Painting offers a unique way to integrate art through the architecture itself. Spinneybeck full grain leather is laser engraved then hand painted creating a truly bespoke aesthetic.
