Earlier in the year, we lucky enough to be sought out by Linley to provide 14 leather portfolios for an interior design project they were undertaking.
The project provided us with a few firsts. They asked for black leather (we had only ever used 3.5mm brown) which we had to source. Each portfolio had the property individually stamped on each cover, which meant double stamping each one with the Knightsbridge logo and then the property name.
The leather we found wasn't 3.5mm but 2.5mm bubble, which was really soft. The stamping exercise however, was costly as there were a few covers that didn't make the grade!
As an aside, we had assumed that our clients project was for a renovation of a building in Knightsbridge London. Turns out there is another very ambitious Knightsbridge being built elsewhere is the world. http://knightsbridgeprivatepark.co.uk/concept/?start=start
We're very proud to have our work in there. Thank you Ayesha at Linley https://www.davidlinley.com

Here's our guide on how to do it correctly.
