Our Mission

Columbia Organ Leathers provides only high quality, Chrome (Cr2O3) Tanned leathers for use in the construction and restoration of Pipe Organs and other musical instruments. We do not provide vegetable or alum tanned leathers, as these have been shown to deteriorate much more quickly than full chrome tanned skins. For more information on the longevity of various types of leathers, we recommend that you purchase a copy of “The Aging of Organ Leather” by Harley Piltingsrud and Jean Tancous from the Organ Historical Society.

. We welcome your order as a professional builder / restorer or as a hobbyist. Established customers may order from this site using their open account. New customers are requested to use a major credit card.

Company Profile

Light Table Inspection

Founded in 1989 as a subsidiary of Columbia Organ Works, Inc., our firm secures high quality leather skins, has them tanned to our specifications, and then processes these skins for use in the Pipe Organ industry. Our leathers are also well suited for most other types of musical instruments which require leather.

We are the only supplier to the musical instrument trade which processes our leathers to thickness on our own equipment. We do all of our own leather splitting and buffing “in house” on modern, precision equipment.

All of our pneumatic skins are light table inspected for pin holes and blemishes.
