The spirit of Edelman is one of diversity, curiosity, and commitment: Diversity of product, curiosity for innovation and commitment to authentic human connections. Making the best leather in the world is in our DNA. Back in the mid 1950's Teddy and Arthur Edelman began creating works of art from exotic skins, taking over the family business. In 1964, with their friend Andy Warhol doing graphic design, the Edelmans became the award-winning leading leather source for the fashion industry. In 1981, they launched their newly formed company, Edelman Leather, for high-end upholstery. Teddy & Arthur unlocked leather's possibilities by blending time-honored craft tradition with a bold artistic vision. That vision drives us still. Woven within our brand are 3rd and 4th generation tanneries, top-tier artisans, and cutting edge design. At Edelman, creativity rules. Edelman is... Inspired. Authentic. Daring. Refined. Consistent. Innovative. Modern. Quality. Luxury. Edelman is Leather.
