Elmonubuck has a grain which varies in structure and offers outstanding comfort. It is an aniline leather with all the distinct features of the natural hide.


For decades, we’ve led the tanning industry toward a circular economy and zero waste. Our biological Water Treatment Plant and Zero Waste Leather concept are game-changers, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to making a difference.

With nearly a century of expertise, we ensure the utmost craftsmanship and quality. Each piece of Elmo leather undergoes meticulous inspection by our skilled artisans and complies with global standards.

Elmonubuck is an aniline leather. When you think of the softest, smoothest, and most exclusive leather, that’s aniline, our most natural product. It’s only given a gentle surface treatment to withstand dirt. All in all, aniline is bare, with its natural beauty retained and exposed. Signs of life, such as creases, fat lines, grain differences, insect bites and small healed wounds, guarantee the finest quality and authenticity.
