About Us

Incorporated in 1993 in Toronto, Canada, CTL Leather a privately owned company, designs and develops innovative and exceptional leathers with elite tanneries, as well as component products for the hospitality, residential, design, automotive, aviation and marine industries.


CTL Leather traces its roots back to the OVL Group, a family group of companies that moved to Toronto, Canada in the early 1980s.

In the late 1980s, the OVL Group expanded its product base to supply leathers to the contract and residential furniture manufacturers, an expansion which eventually led to the incorporation of CTL Leather in the early 1990s.


Up until the mid-1990s, CTL Leather’s primary business was the supply of upholstery leather, representing a large European group of tanneries.

As domestic producers sought leather know-how, CTL expanded its product offering to include Cut-and-Sew manufacturing for the contract and home furnishings industries, as well as the addition of high-end home furnishings components including mechanisms, furniture legs and bases. During this time, CTL also expanded its upholstery leather offerings to include tanneries from Asia and South America.

The turn of the century saw CTL further expand its business from residential and contract manufacturers to include hand bag, architects, procurement companies and designers.


Currently, CTL Leather still a private owed company, dedicated to designing and developing the most innovative and luxurious leathers. Offering over 35 stocked leather lines in over 1000 colors, and over 200 stocked components from its headquarters in Toronto, Canada.
