Transformed By Hand
Halo spends hours fine-tuning each piece: leather is patiently subjected to intricate ageing techniques, with each product requiring seven stages of hand finishing by skilled craftsmen. With all of the leather from Halo’s tannery, the pigments are worked into the leather by hand the way it is done traditionally, leading to a rich colour palette, rather than the uniform treatments often used today.
It takes more time and physical effort, but the rich colour, texture and patina is impossible to achieve in any other way, and makes each hide totally unique. Small irregularities in shapes, finishes and surfaces are hallmarks of such craftsmanship and should not be considered defects but as a sign of the unique authenticity – and cherished as such.
Halo is synonymous with quality, vintage inspired leathers. Halo leather furniture is made from 100% uncorrected aniline leather. It is created on a solid wood frame and its cushions are foam with a fiber wrap. The quality of aniline hides, the patina finishes that create the vintage leather aesthetic and the attention to detail are what separates Halo from the copyists and the imitators. The richness of colour and texture and the luxuriously soft handle are the hallmark of excellence.
Timber and Metal Finishes
Halo use the finest oak and ash timber, hand-crafted and hand-finished to create the unique appearance of their cabinet collections. Each piece is lovingly made by hand, making each piece unique to you. The finish is created by the finest artisans using traditional techniques used for centuries in cabinet making. Wood grain, colour variances, texture changes and knots are all part of the charm of our collections.
Wood is a natural product and the depth, shade of colours and grain pattern vary from item to item. Changes of temperature and atmospheric moisture content will cause movement.
