12 Cool Toru Uses Leather Collection of Unique Seating Design Ideas

Toru first caught our eye in 2017 at Wanted Design and since then the Barcelona-based designer has expanded his collection of seating that uses vegetable-tanned leather in experimental ways. Leather is typically used to upholster pieces of furniture but Toru uses the material itself for backrests and seats on chairs and stools. Each piece is handmade by local craftsman using the highest quality of leather that’s tanned with chestnut, mimosa, and quebracho extracts, which helps keep the original raw look and color of the material.
