Overlap Wrap Handrails provide a distinctive, bespoke aesthetic for any stair, elevator, and door hardware. Originating in Europe, the craft of wrapping handrails in leather is an art form and the overlap wrap emphasizes the handcraftsmanship of these rails. The leather is cut in 3/4 to 1 in (2 to 2.5 cm) wide strips, shaved, and turned at the edges to allow for overlapping. The leather strips are then adhered to the handrail substrate. Customizable options include substrate material, leather type, 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.
