Quality as a foundation

Our leather

FSM uses the highest-quality leather – strong, firm and durable, yet soft and pleasant. Uniquely created by nature with its pattern of pores, grain, surface structure and folds. This is why FSM´s success is directly connected with the legendary quality of the leather. Selection, storage and care in the processing of our different qualities of leather play an even more important role.

You can tell quality furniture leather simply by touching it: soft and pleasant in the hand, the animal hide is supple and smooth to the touch. Large leather hides are needed to produce such exclusive leather furniture. These come mainly from cattle breeds raised under the best conditions for meat production, especially in Switzerland, southern Germany and Scandinavia. Only a fraction of the hide that is without blemishes, scars or even insect bites is suitable for manufacturing first-rate furniture.

With the right tanning, the hide becomes leather that is particularly soft and supple, yet durable – also known as Nappa leather. Using an ancient, chemical process, the animal's skin is preserved and made durable. Subsequent dyeing and finishing transforms the leather into the material we know and love.

FSM offers eight different qualities of leather:The leather is separated into the desired thickness according to the intended application. The most valuable split is the upper leather with its natural grain of the skin because the fibrous structure in the skin's upper or outer layer is significantly thicker and therefore more resistant to tearing. FSM only uses full leather with the natural grain side up.

FSM offers eight different qualities of leather:
