With Custom Color Matching, You Get Exactly What You Need

While Garrett Leather maintains an extensive inventory, we also offer a variety of custom services, including color matching. If you cannot find the exact color that you need from our everyday offerings, please contact us. In most cases, we can make precisely what you need. The process is easy and we’ll help you every step of the way. We begin with what we have as a starting point. From there, we can determine what color is needed. For example, sometimes we have the perfect color, but it is not in the right product for your application. We will work with you to create the exact color in the product you need.

Color Matching Success Stories

A designer originally specified Kenya Clove for hotel headboards. We suggested a more durable product for this specific application. Consequently, we made the same color in Torino, a water-proof and UV protected leather. Torino also has a 50% lower price point than the original spec. The customer was happy with the final product, savings, and superior durability.

Pearlessence Carbon was the perfect color for Steelcase executive seating in a corporate boardroom in New York City, but the designer requested leather with pebble grain. As a result, we matched the Carbon color in our Cadence leather, which has a consistent pebble grain and exceptional durability. The designer was thrilled with the final results.

An aviation designer wanted the color of Flight Carolina Gull in a full grain leather for a Gulfstream G650. Per our customer’s request, we made the same color in our Chatham collection, a full grain leather with superior durability that meets strict FAR requirements and is suitable for high traffic areas.
