Leather Handrails

Leather handrails have become increasingly popular as they add a sense of luxury and sophistication. Canal fabricates a steel handrail which is then clad in leather and hand stitched to achieve an exclusive finish.

Leather wrapped handrails are suitable for a wide range of staircases such as helicalstraight and spiral. The leather can also come in a range of colours and textures to suit any home décor. Some examples are snakeskin, stingray, crocodile, lizard – these are all crafted using cowhide and made to imitate a range of animal skins. The leather-wrapped handrails are a popular choice for both modern and traditional looking staircases.

Back To Bespoke Handrails

  • Leather Handrail Installation

  • Commercial & Residential

As with all of our handrails, there is a choice of two fixing options, a face fix with stainless steel or painted mild steel bracket positioned on the inside face of a balustrade. Canal can also mount the handrail on top of the balustrade with no visible fixings.

Canal ensures that all handrail fixings comply with all applicable building regulations.

Our balustrade design service includes:

  • Initial site survey
  • Specification advice
  • Assistance with material choice, dimensions, fabrication, loading and compliance with British Standards (BS6399 and BS6180).

The projects below will showcase how Canal have previously manufactured bespoke leather handrails for a range of properties in both the commercial and residential world. Feel free to contact our expert team with any questions you may have. All manufacturing takes place at Canal Engineering headquarters in Nottingham.


“Cutting edge, quality, value for money, clean, friendly, fun to work with and ultimately professional. I would not have anyone else do my work and look forward to the next projects.”
