Majeurs restore and manufacture Chesterfield furniture in house, now we want making luxury leather goods from our waste, surplus leathers taken from worn unwanted furniture and waste leather.
To make this project a success, we are asking your help and support to go to production. We currently build chesterfield sofas using components of old and new materials. With existing furniture that cannot be fully restored with its existing leather we will be creating new and beautiful accessories you can use everyday. Wasting absolutely nothing! We are really excited to share it with you here, on Kick starter.

HOW TO DESIGN YOUR CHESTERFIELD
OUR TIME STAMP
Each leather product and furniture we make is given a time stamp... (date of manufacture)
Over the last 2 year we have built up excellent relationships with the UKs best suppliers and experts in leather restoration?
Working with these hand selected individuals together we have pushed the process of leather restoration to their limits. Whilst faced with some challenges along the way with their help we have overcome them.
Working closely we learnt that the people we work with are not only highly skilled individuals but the best of 21st century craftsman who are proud to share their knowledge and experience with us.
GREEN THINKING & UP-CYCLING
By supporting us and purchasing a Majeurs piece, you are helping the environment. Extend the life of leather by creating new ways to restore it, reinvent it, or even use its components to build something new instead of throwing them out. Give a second chance to good leather.
Majeurs started in early 2011. A year later we received a loan from Start up Loans to take the business to the next level. With this loan we were able to really refine our skills, and begin creating.
In 2013 we appeared on ITV Daybreak to talk about out journey so far and invited to No.10 Downing street to meet the Prime Minister (David Cameron) and an opportunity to showcase our business and the importance of restoration and reuse.

Risks and challenges
Our products are all 100% top grade leathers. All components have been sourced and our manufacturer’s are lined up and ready to start production as soon as we reach funding goal.
Our goal is to increase production of our line of the chesterfield accessories. Whilst we design and build our furniture we will be producing leather goods from all of our unused leathers.
However, there can often be hitches with manufacturing, so we've left a little cushion and hope to have the products to backers sooner.
Although this is our first experience bringing a product to market, we have been thorough in establishing relationships with the manufacturers and working out the kinks ahead of time to ensure a steady roll out.
If for some reason we do encounter delays as we will not be rushing or compromising on quality, we will be sure to keep you notified.
Majeurs line is ready, the production facilities are ready, and we are ready. Help us make this happen!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
