Kare Leather & Parchment

We are an Istanbul based company, founded in 2004. We manufacture high quality parchment for a wide range of applications including wall paneling, furniture cladding, painting, calligraphy, book binding, light fixtures, upholstery and more.

 

For us, leather making is a family tradition going back several generations. We dedicate our time reviving this ancient material and expanding its use in contemporary applications.

 

Our latest custom range is parchment cladded panels that can be used to create tabletops, bedheads, coffee tables, or other interior design items. We provide parchment hides to furniture and interior design companies in the U.K., Germany, Italy, U.S. and Japan. We do retail and wholesale.

We also make parchment and leather bags, purses bespoke parchment coasters, notebooks, magnets and bookmarks. Our products are sold at European and Turkish museums, including Magritte Museum in Brussels, Russian State Museums in St. Petersburg,  Sakip Sabancı Museum, Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.
