Our History


Our expertise in making leather goes back to Cromwell’s founding in 1898 in Germany. By 1946, when Curtis Cromwell established the headquarters in New York, the company had become recognized internationally as tanners of fine leathers.

In the second half of the twentieth century, Cromwell focused its growth on providing specialty leathers for leather goods, graphic arts and furnishing products. The foundation was laid for the company’s present position as an innovator in the industry, as Cromwell applied its deep knowledge and experience in producing fine Genuine Leathers to develop unique Bonded Leathers.

Since 1990 Cromwell has expanded globally. With manufacturing plants in the United States and Europe, as well as offices and warehousing in the United States, Asia and Europe. Cromwell maintains a strong international presence. This enables us to stay on the cutting edge of leather fashion and to provide unparalleled service to customers.
