The Leather Art Museum boasts a heterogeneous collection featuring chests, folding screens, antependia, desks, chairs, saddles, masks and shadow theatre figures, etc.
The exhibits, of great artistic value and from a wide variety of places and periods, showcase an array of leather-working techniques, such as guadamassil (polychrome or gold-embossed lamb leather), used for the production of wall coverings, antependia and folding screens, etc., and cuir de Cordoue (high quality goat leather), applied to chests and boxes.
Focusing on artistic leather work, the permanent exhibition covers the history of decorative and luxury arts in Europe, with incursions into Chinese and African cultures, among others.
