Pergamena is recognized as North America’s leader in parchments, leathers, and applied designs — a badge we accept with humility and purpose. We are “process people.” From raw materials to custom pieces, each of our products is handmade. It is our talent and pleasure to recognize and highlight the native qualities of each animal skin. Our dedication to superior craftsmanship is rooted in a sense of belonging to an ancient tradition — one we keep alive as we blend it with modern advancements and aesthetics. We hope to inspire that same sense of belonging in our customers, as well as joy in appreciating an exquisitely crafted product.
The Pergamena team is creative and optimistic. We see wide-ranging potential for our products. We genuinely love collaborating with clients to provide the perfect raw materials for their projects; to create superb, custom-designed heirloom pieces; or to test new designs and ideas. In addition to commissions, we proudly offer our own designs, ready-made to bring the striking, incomparable beauty of parchment to our customers with the click of a button.
As a leader in the field, Pergamena is committed to ethical and environmentally sound business practices. The hides we use for parchment and leather come from animals that have died naturally or been raised for food. And all of our hides come from local farms and hunters. Our leathers are vegetable-tanned, a traditional and environmentally sound process, and we try to use natural and biodegradable dyes or pigments whenever possible. Additionally, Sigunik Studio’s parchment applications are produced using formaldehyde-free substrates, solvent-free adhesives, and low-VOC finishes.
Whether you are shopping for raw materials or custom designs, you can count on us for responsible production methods, as well as unrivaled quality.
