Leather Swatches

April in Paris works with four French tanners, and source only the finest and highest quality skin. Our tanners do special dye lots specifically for us, and we have extraordinary color palettes to select from.


French Grain Calf

We import our grain calf exclusively from France. Each hide is mineral tanned and vegetable re-tanned making leathers resistant, smooth, and durable. The hides have a unique pebbled texture, we like to call a stingray grain calf. The grain is emphasized by hand polishing and each hide has a hand-rubbed finish. This finish gives the leather a natural effect. The colors are rich, transparent and deep making them a one of a kind.

American Millennium Alligator

April in Paris only uses the best grade American farm raised alligator skins. The Millennium Finish is a medium gloss between matte and classic. This classic, lightly glazed finish is resistant to scratches and very easy to clean.


Our ostrich leather is farm raised and as it ages will take on a beautiful shiny patina. The leather is one of the toughest, but most pliable skins in the world. Ostrich leather is full of natural oils, which helps to resist drying, cracking, and stiffness.

If interested, please contact us for available Ostrich skins colors.

Signature Bee Canvas

Our Signature Bee Canvas is a 100% cotton sateen jacquard with our contemporary bee logo. This canvas comes pre-treated to be stain and water resistant.
