The leather belt tiles are a bespoke surface designed and developed by TING. The creative techniques involved have been refined over fifteen years and these textiles have been installed in a variety of premium environments: such as penthouses, yachts, boutique hotels, restaurants and members clubs.
Our luxurious leather tiles re-work vintage leather belts to create a unique, glossy and hardwearing surface. In the construction of the tiles we use many different leather belts and each belt is individually hand selected by our experienced leather craftsman to ensure the highest grade of leather. This process of collecting and sourcing the belts along with the individual collation of each tile means that no two tiles will ever be identical.
We work closely with clients to create the desired aesthetic for each tile or panel. These are carefully compiled in-house to assure the correct balance of colour, texture and pattern to compliment each individual design theme.
Available by the square foot or in bespoke panel sizes, these leather tiles are suitable for a variety of surfaces, including floors, walls, doors and tables. Our leather floors age gracefully, as time passes and foot traffic works the leather, it develops its own patina and history, which we feel adds to the character of our product.
