For the love of leather
WEINBAUM manufactures carpets and premium furniture from exclusive Argentinean leathers and cowhides. All pieces are handmade, each item tells its very own story. We use only quality materials that guarantee the exceptional durability and timeless elegance of our products. The cattle (Holstein, Hereford and Shorthorn) that is held at selected estancias throughout the provinces of Córdoba and Santa Fe feed during their two-year life exclusively on grass; meat and bone meal was outlawed decades ago. Untreated, all year round usable pastures and exceptional freedom (two cattle share a hectare of land) provide more than 3,000 calves, cows and bulls at our partner companies with excellent conditions. The result: Exceptionally durable leather whose soft touch will inspire you every day anew.
Commitment to the Original
Together with its suppliers, WEINBAUM promotes the preservation of natural resources. Accordingly, 3% of our revenues are used for a conversion program for pasture in northern Argentina.
