We are currently operating with all staff who are able working remotely and with an extremely limited number of workers at our manufacturing plant in order to fulfill the essential needs of our customers. These essential workers are following social distancing practices in thoroughly cleaned and sanitized workspaces.

Production and Shipping Lead Times

We continue to ship from stock out of our Ohio warehouse weekly with a reduced staff. 

Beginning April 13th, we will produce leather on a limited schedule to meet essential needs of our customers. We will have full production capabilities, including custom matches. Lead times may be extended due to the reduced staffing and schedule. Please contact your sales or customer service representative to inquire about lead times.

Italian tanneries are currently scheduled to reopen and begin shipping on May 5th. Upon reopening, orders will be processed according to the order date and priority. 

Due to restricted air travel from Europe, all deliveries of hides and finished leathers from Europe will be shifted to sea containers, adding two weeks to the freight time. We are estimating 3-4 weeks lead time for all orders shipping from Italy. For rush orders, air freight is availabe with premium charges. 

Please contact your showroom or sales representative for updated status on your order.

A relevant reminder, our full-finished leathers and our leathers protected by Crypton® can be cleaned and disinfected with Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes and Clorox Clean Up Spray Cleaner with Bleach and other common household cleaners and disinfectants.

Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
