Cromwell bonded leathers have the look, feel and smell of Cromwell genuine leathers because they are tannery made; produced on the same equipment using the same methods as our genuine leathers. The cowhide fibers we use to make bonded leathers come from the tanning process when the hides are brought to a uniform thickness. The fibers are bonded with natural latex on our unique machinery. As a result, Cromwell Bonded Leathers are soft and smooth with a true fine leather aroma.

We produce our bonded leathers in continuous rolls, which can be shipped either in rolls or in sheets

Quality
Cromwell’s expertise is leather for books. This is critical because every step in processing, from raw material selection to tanning, coloring and cutting, is focused toward bookbinding. This focus affects beauty, durability and workability. Each cover is made to last for generations. Colors must not fade over time. Each cover must work well in the bindery. That means proper foil stamping, excellent adhesion to both top and back sides of the cover, uniform thickness control and clean backs. And customers are assured of Cromwell’s quality in process and chemistry. Components must meet rigorous American and European standards so there will be no surprises, such as lead found in pigments.

Cromwell Montana cowhide has beautiful grain variation and natural range markings. Each cover attests to the uniqueness of the hide. It will improve with age as regular handling creates an attractive burnished patina. It is an important attribute of Cromwell Montana Cowhide that, over the course of time and use, the owner of the book will develop a unique personal attachment to the volume.

Cromwell Saderra® genuine leather is uniquely selected, tanned and finished for bookbinding.

Selection
We start by securing the best skins from the most reliable sources. We choose selected pigskin raw material because pigskin leather has particularly high strength, a necessary quality for fine bookbinding. Our long experience in worldwide procurement is critically important. Raw material uniformity provides an essential element in Cromwell consistency. Further, we use skins with a particularly tight fiber structure. This inhibits wrinkling or "double hiding” of the leather in the hinge area of the book when it is opened and closed.

Tanning
Cromwell Saderra® genuine leather is tanned with a specialized combination of tannins. This provides the leather with an outstanding blend of characteristics; softness for flexibility, fullness for hubbing on the spine, and preservation for long life..

Finishing
We color and grain our leather for both beauty and function. We carefully control the process in our own modern factory. Close attention is paid to make sure that thickness is uniform. The highest quality leather finishes are applied in multiple coats to protect the book from abrasion and wear. We formulate specialized light stable colorants to inhibit fading, even with extensive light exposure. More than one thousand tons of pressure imparts grain detail that will not diminish over time. Cromwell finishing technology uses advanced chemistry and equipment. In order to be environmentally sound, our processing is water based and we test to ensure compliance with international standards for lead content.

Cutting
Generally, we provide Cromwell Saderra® genuine leather in cut to size covers. This gives the customer the advantages of certainty in cost and no waste. We inspect and guarantee each cover. Because of our wide range of In Stock leathers, minimum order quantities are low and covers are shipped quickly.

Cromwell’s focus is bookbinding leather. Our experience and investment make us the world leader in this highly specialized field.
