American Business: Garrett Leather

Garrett Leather is the world's largest, individually-owned, distributor of Italian uphostery leather. Located in Western New York, they service a number of industries, including hotels, airlines, automotive interiors, and home upholstery. Their client list includes Bill Clinton, Harrison Ford, Four Seasons Hotels, and wizard shoes for Harry Potter. I also found their glossary interesting- the right term for old leather is ''distressed'' or ''antiqued''.

Garrett Leather has a nice location in Buffalo, and seems to be thriving despite the national recession and the neverending recession in Western New York. They recently recieved a prestigious contract with the GSA.

Their website is here.
