Pampa Leather Corp. is a Canadian company creating exquisite, hand-crafted leather wall coverings – hair on hide and non-hair on hide – out of South America.
Our collection comprises a wide array of designs including natural, dyed and metallic hide colors, as well as woven leather, large cowhide tiles and custom and oversized Leather Wall Covering Panels.
Most of the designs in our Cowhide Rug collection are also available as Wall Covering Panels, and we can even match Hide Walls with Cowhide Rugs designs and colors.
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.
