Just a very quick e-mail to thank you for the excellent service you have just given me in the replacement of my, and my wife's, desk leathers. In all respects, I have been most impressed - pre-purchase advice, very competitive prices, and (not least of all) the quality of the product (including the associated embossing) when it arrived (only 4 days post order). I rarely do this but, if you so wish; I am content for you to use this valedictory note in your merchandising efforts. And, on a case by case basis, I would be happy for you to give this e-mail address (only) to those who enquire and would like to contact a previous - and extremely satisfied - customer.
Yours most sincerely,
Sir Clive Loader
Thank you so much for the gold leather skiver you sent so speedily today – it’s brilliant, fits perfectly and I’m absolutely delighted with it!
It’s just that I have dealt with numerous suppliers of desk leathers over the past few weeks in my search for the right top for my desk, and you are by far head and shoulders above the rest!
Yes you are competitively priced, but also you are by far the swiftest to respond to my enquiries, the fastest to send out samples - that are the correct ones that I asked for (you wouldn’t believe how many wrong samples I’ve received from other companies – which makes me rather reluctant to spend any serious money with them for fear of them sending the wrong finished leather top!!!)
You have also been the most courteous and the most helpful with much appreciated advice and support.
Many thanks again for a fabulous service!
Very best wishes
Just to say, the leather edging arrived safely, and I have now put it all in place.
You did a really wonderful Job, thank you so much, it looks fantastic.
I was staggered at how quickly you got my new leather top – embossed to my requirements - delivered to me after I placed my order on the phone – a matter of two or three working days – thank you so much. I am absolutely delighted with the quality, the advice I received on the phone was spot on, and the price compared very favourably indeed with others I contacted. I would recommend you to anyone with this need – great customer service and product, thanks a lot.
Just a quick thanks, you cut and embossed an octagonal insert for my wine table recently. I’d like to thank you for a good piece of work, delivered promptly. My table now has resumed its position in my front room instead of the cupboard where it was hidden.
Thanks for the product and service. Item arrived today and happy with it.
Helpful on ordering, good postage and a good price.
As promised i will be ordering again from you.
All the best,
Thank you very much. The skiver has arrived and I am delighted with it. It is just what I wanted, similar enough to the original but simpler and as the local Blacksmith would have it
It is lovely, thanks.
Just a quick thank you for your excellent and prompt service.
The leathers for my desk are beautiful and now firmly in place.
Great service thank you
Thank you for the leather which I have now fixed to the desk - and it looks really beautiful. I will be contacting you again because I have another desk which requires having its leather replaced. Thank you very much for your excellent service.
I have received the skiver and it looks great. Thank you very much for the brilliant service.
Received leather this morning. Very pleased, excellent value and service! Will be happy to use you again.
Hello Tony, Thank you for sending me the new desk leather which has now been fitted. It's very good quality and looks beautiful; my old desk has been given a new lease of life. Thank you for an excellent service. Best Wishes, Valerie Kernick
Hi Tony, Just to let you know, I got the new skiver and it looks amazing! Really good work, and it'll look great when I've got the box ready for it to go on.
Kind regards, James
Thanks for the leather desk top provided it looks to be of the high standard I wished for. I fitted it quite easily myself using advice from a number of web sites and can recommend your product.
Belated thanks for the faux leather inlays. Nice material and tooling, all delivered efficiently. Much appreciated.
I’d like to say that the leather for my writing slope arrived last week and I’m very pleased with it.
I haven’t found a way to leave feedback on your website, so I thought I’d just send an email.
You have crafted many, many skivers for me over the years and every one has been made with great care and delivered safely and speedily.
And I know, with confidence, that after I have spent several days restoring a customer's pedestal desk that the very last task, after the veneer work, the carpentry and the polishing is the icing on the cake .... the leather that turns expectation into beautiful reality.
Thank you, for helping me do a good job every time.
Just to say, once again we are extremely pleased with the desk leather you supplied us. We have been using you for many years now and every skiver and leather you have supplied us, is to a very high standard with lovely tooling, superfast delivery and they suit our antique desks perfectly. All our customers always comment on the high standard of leather and after spending many days cleaning and restoring our desks, it finishes them of perfectly. You can see many examples of the desk leathers we use on our website https://antiquesworld.co.uk/antique/desks/
You are always very polite and helpful and never fail to get our order turned around quickly. Keep up the good work Tony and I will no doubt be ordering again soon.

The skiver arrived this morning.
Thank you very much, it is just perfect.
New leather is now in situ on my antique desk and it looks really good. Many thanks for your service and the fast despatch.
Now the leather insert is fitted I just wanted to write to say how delighted I am with it.
To be honest fitting it was slightly nerve wracking recognising the value of the piece, however careful measuring and using a very sharp scalpel made the job easier than I expected.
Your chalk lines were very helpful, as was the advice to use wallpaper paste – it certainly made it easy to position and adjust the leather.
Truly appreciate your advice, knowledge and responsiveness.
Have included some before, during and after photos in case of use.
Hi Tony...just to let you know that the leather has arrived and we're absolutely delighted. Thank you so much.
A bit delayed but just to confirm we used a PVA adhesive as you suggested and the new desk cover looks and feels great. Very happy with the end result and thank you for your time and advice from the initial contact.
