"Harmatan was established in the early 1980s to supply the finest quality vegetable tanned goatskins and offer smooth grained calf skins for bookbinders. Our reputation for exceptional quality spread rapidly amongst specialist binders in the United Kingdom and around the world. We are a family owned and operated company with a dedicated and skilled tannery staff who put a firm emphasis on quality and traditional craft skills. We are happy to offer the benefit of broad experience and provide expert advice on applications and materials."
"Pergamena is recognized as North America’s leader in parchments and leathers — a badge we accept with humility and purpose. We are “process people.” From raw materials to custom projects, each of our products is handmade. It is our talent and pleasure to recognize and highlight the native qualities of each animal skin. Our dedication to superior craftsmanship is rooted in a sense of belonging to an ancient tradition — one we keep alive as we blend it with modern advancements and aesthetics. We hope to inspire that same sense of belonging in our customers, as well as joy in appreciating an exquisitely crafted product."
