Connolly's reputation has been built on the production of high quality leather for a wide range of niche markets over the last 135 years.
Today Connolly is keen to maintain and further this reputation by developing lines for clients who require exclusivity. Connolly is constantly researching new materials in an effort to combine longevity with natural feel, appearance and aroma.
Whilst Connolly has a great deal of experience in high volume manufacture, it now prefers to supply a niche market of discerning clients that appreciate a product that is natural, beautiful and rare.
Through the company's involvement with Design and Innovation in the Automotive, Luxury Goods and Product markets, Connolly has combined a considerable understanding of the problems involved with the development of a new product. The use of Connolly leather in a growing number of concept cars is testament to this.
Along with the market's desire for uniformity and the ease of mass production, Connolly recognised that the resulting characterless leather masked many of the timeless qualities found in such a natural product. There were, however, those clients who continued to appreciate leather's natural qualities, grain variations, patina and tactility. Recent times have witnessed the evergrowing popularity of the authentic characteristics of leather and the consumers' desire to own and create a unique product or restore a product using materials true to their original form.
Connolly is eager to help fulfil that ambition.
