More about Gates to Africa
Leather Couches

Gates to Africa has a philosophy that when the specialised expertise and understanding of genuine leather and tanning technology is married with the experience and an in-depth understanding of designer furniture and décor, the ideas flowing from that synergy will always be innovative… Take those ideas into a factory of craftsman with passion for fine hand made furniture and the results should be interesting..!

We think we’re onto something…

We’re passionate about leather, and we’re passionate about décor. And we’re committed to producing furniture that not only showcases leather’s inherent quality and timeless beauty, but lasts literally a lifetime.

Gates to Africa has showrooms in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Bloemfontein supplying leather sofas and furniture designed, developed and manufactured in our own factories in Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. A scientific approach to sofa manufacture has led to a number of groundbreaking innovations in frame design and cushioning, and has kept us at the forefront with regard to quality and comfort in particular.

Leather is sourced from the most reputable tanneries in Southern Africa. In keeping with our “no compromise” approach to quality, we insist on using only full grain leather, ensuring a lifespan upwards of 25 years without the cracking and peeling associated with the deterioration of corrected grain and bi-cast leather.

The continuous interaction between clients and our designers provides valuable feedback and is an added dimension in our ongoing commitment to produce the “Rolls Royce” of leather couches.
