Townsend Leather makes beautiful upholstery leather for interior designs in business and commercial aircraft, in yachts, automobiles and luxury motor coaches, and for residential, hospitality and office furniture applications.
Townsend was founded in 1969 by the Kucel family. Our state-of-the-art factory of 230,000 SF is located in upstate New York, about 50 miles NW of Albany. We are craftsmen and manufacturers of leather, not jobbers, distributors or marketers. We produce all our own leather to exact specifications, and take great pride in our level of workmanship, quality control and customer service. As an experienced, hands-on manufacturer, Townsend has complete control over the entire leather-making process, from the world-wide sourcing of hides to the drum-dying and finishing of all our leathers in our own factory. Quality, consistency and attention to customer specifications and schedules are assured.
Townsend Leather is a member of the Townsend Leather Group. Formed as a joint venture with The Leather Institute, a recognized expert in training, product development and delivery of leather care and restoration services, the Townsend Leather Group is dedicated to producing premium upholstery leathers and to providing maintenance solutions that preserve the beauty and prolong the life of fine leather seating.
