Leather handrails elevate an overlooked rail to a tactile, distinctive feature. This elegant and durable solution for stairs or elevator and door hardware enhances a space with a handcrafted, bespoke architectural element. Originating in Europe, the craft of wrapping handrails in leather is an art form. The leather is cut, shaved, and wrapped by hand adhering the leather to the handrail substrate. To create a polished, seamless aesthetic, the handrail is stitched on the underside providing a subtle handmade detail and tactile surprise beneath. Customizable options include substrate material and diameter, leather type, stitching style, thread color, and leather or stainless steel end caps.

Maintenance For finished leathers, wipe with a cool, damp cloth. For tougher soiling, use a pH-balanced soap such as Dawn with a 1:10 ratio of soap to water and rinse. Repeat, if needed. Occasional use of Spinneybeck Finished Leather Cleaner, Conditioner & Protector is recommended. For naked (aniline) leathers, wipe entire surface with a soft cloth and cool water to even out any abrasions or stains. Do not spot rub, for it will darken only that area. Occasional use of Spinneybeck Aniline Leather Cleaner, Conditioner & Protector is recommended. Other leather cleaners such as saddle soap or household cleaners that may contain harsh chemicals, alcohol or ink removers should never be used.
