Cambridge is a brand new offering from Moore & Giles about which we could not be more excited. It is made on full grain buffalo hides and features a striking pull up effect that subdues the sheen on the hide and replaces it with, a lighter, worn matte effect where the leather is stressed. This creates what is, to me, the most natural looking vintage effect on day one.
Another standout quality of Cambridge is the rich and surprisingly soft hand achieved through an extensive milling process and innovative new wax treatment. All that, on a hide that is on the thick side and provides a weighty hand.
You should expect significant variation in color from hide to hide and even within a hide, but the overall effect when upholstered is simply stunning.
You can see some of the authentic “worn-in” effect produced by Cambridge leather in this piece which is a Traditional Chesterfield Sectional now in our North Carolina Showroom. Here is a video showing off the Cambridge Dark Rum:
Cambridge is a versatile leather that is well suited for use on contemporary pieces or for an authentic vintage look on Classic or tufted pieces.
