Embossed leather – the embodiment of tactile design. The Cortina Leathers Emboss Program starts with four premium leather types especially suited to the embossing process. We imprint the leather with texture in your choice of 20 styles—from traditional alligator and ostrich to modern braids, basket weaves, herringbone and more. Explore every option and design your own unique embossed leather from 65 colors.

Smooth, high gloss aniline. Lightly distressed with a crackle effect. When embossed, Athene displays a very subtle tonal contrast between the pattern’s high and low areas.


Vacuum-dried, full grain, semi-aniline leather. Natural variable sheen and vegetable re-tanned for a firm hand. When embossed, Giulia maintains an even color tone, with very little contrast between the pattern’s high and low areas.


Double oil-treated aniline pull-up leather with bright burst. When embossed, Sundance displays strong tonal contrast between the pattern’s high and low areas, appearance being transformed and becoming truly three-dimensional.


Pure Aniline, heavy-weight bull hide treated with paraffin. Dry-milled for a slight sheen at the tips. When embossed, Utah displays a middling tonal contrast between the pattern’s high and low areas - lighter on the tips, darker in the valleys – with its very natural finish adopting an even more subtle patina.

Please request the Cortina Emboss sample of your design dreams! We keep several combinations stocked as samples however many combinations of color and pattern are offered as two samples: (1) the article and color of your choice, and (2) the pattern and article of your choice embossed in a different color. We will reach out within two business days from your request to confirm that the sampling options we currently have stocked will meet your project’s needs. Should you wish to have a hide embossed on a specific color, your Cortina Leathers sales representative will facilitate the custom sampling order for a fee.
