Introducing Premium Olive Tanned Leather
Garrett Leather is pleased to introduce Mira; a collection of olive tanned, natural grain, premium leather. This exclusive collection is a unique pull-up leather with self-healing resiliency. Mira, meaning “to look” or “behold”, encourages designers to experience the restorative capabilities, rich colors, exceptionally soft hand, and pleasant fragrance that this leather offers.
Mira balances luxury and sustainability with a heightened focus on material awareness and longevity. Olive tanning reduces carbon emissions and has an overall lower environmental impact. It facilitates a circular economy, safeguarding value in the form of energy, revitalization, labor and materials. The patented wet-green® OBE tanning agent is a byproduct of fallen olive tree leaves sourced in the Mediterranean. Rather than burning or discarding the leaves, they are collected and brewed like a tea. The same active ingredients in this extract can be found in extra virgin olive oil and natural cosmetics. The result is a bio-based, extraordinarily soft leather that engages your senses. In the spirit of full transparency, this leather achieved Declare status and is LBC Red List Free.
When Mira is stretched or pulled, the color migrates and becomes lighter in the pulled areas, exhibiting signs of energy and life in each hide. It’s a marvelous display of nature’s beauty and authenticity, with prominent natural and unique markings, such as neck wrinkles and striations. Varied degrees of mottling add to the depth and layers of color. An evolved palette of high-impact, organic colors tap into our optimism and inspiration for our most treasured spaces.
Intriguing, Irresistible Softness
Mira is finished with a combination of transparent waxes and oils, which highlights the natural grain and accentuates its exceptional softness. Alluringly supple and inviting, you’ll immediately discern Mira’s rich, full-bodied hand-feel.
Created with longevity in mind, Mira’s self-healing and restorative capabilities celebrate nature’s perseverance. Light marks and scratches will appear with use and fade over time. Mira ages beautifully, developing a rich patina. It is recommended for all upholstery applications, especially in residential, corporate, and hospitality settings, as well as vertical wall applications.
Thoughtfully crafted and effortlessly beautiful, Mira sheds a new light on olive tanned leather. All ten LBC Red List Free and GREENGUARD GOLD® Certified colors are in-stock and available for immediate shipment. Mira is sold in full hides averaging 45 square feet.

Introducing Nurtured By Nature
After comprehensive research and development with Gensler’s Product Development Team, Garrett Leather is pleased to introduce the Nurtured by Nature collection. Garrett Leather promotes natural materials. Nature inspires. It refreshes. It reminds us of the beauty found in the smallest details. Garrett Leather’s newest collection gives the elements of the natural world – plants, trees, animals, rivers, air-to all that your imagination can create.
The Nurtured by Nature collection includes four patterns. Fronds adds air and texture at small and large scale applications. It pays homage to the graceful sweep of one of earth’s oldest plants. Tendrils evokes air and water and wind with its elegant sense of gentle rippling movement. Hive is an etched texture with a naturally inconsistent pattern. And Honeycomb, nature’s original maker space, is a geometric powerhouse enhanced through the depth of a consistent embossed pattern. Fronds, Tendrils and Hive are etched patterns available on six colorways that give depth and the pride of patina. Honeycomb is an embossed pattern exclusive to Garrett Leather. It is available in three hues of full grain leather that age to perfection like stones or wood worn by rushing waters.
