Pampa Leather Corp. is a Canadian company creating exquisite, hand-crafted leather wall panels and tiles out of South America. The Pampas in South America are renowned for producing some of the highest quality hides in the world.
In the hands of our expert artisans, these hides become one-of-a-kind wall mounting tiles or wall covering panels, tailored to please even the most discriminating tastes.
Panels and tile sizes may vary to conform client’s specs. The most common tile size is 20 cm x 20 cm (approx. 8” x 8”)
We can also offer tiles in sizes ranging from 15 cm to 15 (approx. 6” x 6”) cm to 30 cm x 30 cm (approx. 12” x 12”)
Our collection comprises a wide array of designs including natural, dyed and animal print hides.
The thickness of the leather panels averages approximately 1.8 mm (or 1/14 of an inch), including the fabric cloth mounted on the reverse side.
Given that each application will require site-specific considerations, we recommend following the advice of professional installers when applying leather wall coverings.
As a general guideline, leather panels should always be cut on-site to the required dimensions by a professional installer, who should also be able to advise on the need for including humidity insulation.
In most cases, professionals have advised against installing leather panels directly onto drywall; they may, for example, suggest gluing the leather panels (using a strong leather adhesive) to a thin wooden sheet (MDF or other material) and stapling the edges to the reverse -thus ensuring a smooth, stretched surface.
Following these steps may not only help secure a stronger bond, but may also help prevent the future formation of air bubbles caused by humidity.
