Garlands

The Greeks wore them as diadems, Julius Caesar was crowned with one, Della Robbia made them in terra-cotta, and we now make them out of leather. Garlands symbolize hospitality and are an inherent element of interior decorating and architectural detail. Our leather garlands are not only fine examples of original American craftsmanship, but they will far outlast the dried flower and synthetic models. The construction, craftsmanship, and materials used make our garlands durable, water resistant, easy to clean, and, above all, spectacular in terms of both color and design.

We are well known for our use of color, but we recently decided to give some of our GARLANDS a classical and muted look by applying only a hint of color. Not only does this emphasize both the form and the line, but the neutral palette tends to appeal to those customers who prefer classical architectural detail and/or a modern abstract look. Appropriately, we call this new color range “NEUTRAL,” and designs currently offered in this color scheme are indicated by the asterisk (*) after their names.
