Keeping our high quality high

Quality does not come by chance, and definitely not the exclusive high quality which Sørensen Leather takes pride in delivering. Of course, trust is paramount. And we have great confidence in our skilled partners and highly trained staff.

The eyes and the expertise

Internal quality checks
Our staff is well versed in all aspects of leather and its production. They go to great lengths to evaluate every aspect of each hide – from the colour calibration, rub and surface shine to the firmness, comfort, durability, susceptibility to light and more. Because consistency is always a challenge with a natural raw material like leather. Even the most discrete detail that most people would miss – a subtle variation in the surface, a glitch in a glossy finish or a millimetre difference in measurement – they’re the first to spot it.

Once the hides have been through our extensive testing protocol, we check to be sure that the leather meets the requirements of each order and any special requests. Including the right nuances of colour, texture and other qualities.

Furthermore, at Sørensen Leather we choose partners we can count on to deliver our standards of high quality and consistency – without compromise. Each tannery and producer has its own speciality and area of expertise. For each project, we individually select the partners most suited for the optimal outcome.

External quality checks
Additionally, we often take extra steps to ensure the utmost in high quality through meticulous tests conducted externally, as well. Our external partners for this are Europe’s most renowned test institutes, namely BLC Leather Technology Centre Ltd and Forschungsinstitut für Leder und Kunststoffbahnen, FILK. They also ensure that our leather meets the highest European quality standards in terms of:

  • Colour fastness to light
  • Rub fastness
  • Finish adhesion strength
  • Tear strength
  • Flexibility
  • Thickness
  • Colour intensity
