Creating a mark in the Indian lifestyle market was a challenge we, at Chester’s, we’re ready to undertake. We recognized the market’s tastes and styles, which helped us develop a vision to maintain our brand sustainability. Hence, Chester’s was on the road to enhance our products and processes right from the roots.
Today, the current furniture market is thriving with budding vendors selling the same furniture through different approaches. We realized, our work had to raise the standards, in order to make our brand emerge as a unique entity. To embark on this journey, our founder Mr. Ramaswamy set foot on exploring different countries, in the pursuit of retrieving the finest raw materials which would embrace our Chesterfield collections exquisitely.
Chester’s production ground base begins with the choice of leather we use. Mr. Ramaswamy has traveled and witnessed the work of many tanners across numerous countries, to understand the texture and styles for quality sofa production. Chester’s believes, ‘’Real leather is a natural product that breathes, is warm, and has individual characteristics, which makes each hide unique’’.
To create an ethereal and elegant leather finish, Chester’s employs 5 different leather textures, to complement their individual furniture creations:
Following the conventional practice of the 17th century, Europe, this leather texture is Chester’s original leather. Being a full grain leather, its bovine touch adds the right strength and durability with its fiber, to sustain the longevity of our furniture. The thickness ranges from 1.1 mm to 1.3 mm.
Relishing the touch of silk makes one appreciate the softness when one repeatedly sits on the sofa. A top grain cattle leather, semi Nubuck leather, is used here to provide the finishing surface. It is water resistant which means that it forms back to its original color, eliminating any liquid fade towards the texture. The addition of milled grain, adds the oomph towards the edges of the leather. The thickness ranges from 1.1 mm to 1.3 mm.
A touch of luxury is added through the implementation of our full grain aniline leather. Created form the highest quality of bovine hides, this adds the subtle color tone which is showcased underneath the surface. The advantage of using aniline leather is its ability to develop a patina as time passes since it acts as a protection shield for the furniture, from growing old or witnessing any damages. The thickness ranges from 1.1 mm to 1.3 mm.
The fine Nappa leather allows our craftsman to showcase the golden era styles in a modern look. Nappa leathers are very easy to clean, making it a highly valued investment for parents. These type of leathers never fade away like any of the color fabrics, instead, hold on the superiority even after many long years. The thickness ranges from 1.1 mm to 1.3 mm.
Laguna is the leather which is here to stay and truly defines the term, ‘aged to perfection’. The usage of Laguna leather completes the classic look of our Chesterfield collections. Showcasing a lighter tone of natural grain leather, its rustic feel creates the perfection factor to anyone who views it. The furniture textures made from Laguna leather always stay the same, no matter how old they grow. The thickness ranges from 0.9 mm to 1.2 mm.
At Chester’s, our purpose is to create a work of art to meet our consumers' changing needs. Our main aim is to never fabricate the same design to satisfy all. When our every consumer's preferences are different, then why should we sell them the same design? Our well-experienced craftsmanship understands, how leather being the strength of our compilation, completes Chester’s ideologies; Why should we then compromise on the quality of such a significant material?
'Leather' is a component loved by all, regardless of age, gender, or occupation. Chester’s uses the finest leathers to produce, age-old beauty which remains unfadable, alongside, adding the glamour, elegance, and class to your home spaces. Our aim is to deliver, ‘’leather that is wonderful to touch, that ages gracefully and which you can cherish forever’’.
