About Us

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.
